GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Vandals have spray painted a historic covered bridge.

The letters T and R were painted on the The Wheeling Bridge, which spans the Patoka River northeast of Princeton.

Gibson County has two of these historic bridges. This one underwent renovation in 2000.

The tourism website says it was originally built in 1877.

Economic Development officials say cameras are in the area. It’s not known yet if they captured the vandalism.

We’ve reached out to the Sheriff’s Office to find out if they are investigating, but we haven’t heard back.
