Getting There

Following the road (County Road 480 ) past the church in Dubina, you will pass the Old Dubina Store and continuing west you will cross the "Piano Bridge".


Some say it's named after it's musical sound as you drive over it, while bridge aficionados tell us it is technically a "piano-wire truss."

You can climb up to the nameplate and see it was built in 1885 by the King Bridge Company of Cleveland, (Ohio not Texas) or you can take our word for it. It's one of the few remaining iron bridges in Fayette County.

Although 480 is a dirt road, it will connect with FM 615, which is paved and will take you to Highway 77.
