    During the heyday of covered-bridge building in Canada, at least 900 covered bridges were built in Quebec. Today 81 remain. In Driving into the Past, Eastern Townships filmmaker Louise Abbott looks at the history of covered bridges in the province through interviews with historians, timber framers, conservationists, and locals. She examines different bridge-building styles and follows the restoration of a covered bridge in Eustis. She looks at the way in which covered bridges have connected communities literally, and, more recently, figuratively, as preservationists have worked together to save or reconstruct these historical buildings. Along the way, she captures the bucolic beauty of the landscapes that so often surround covered bridges and the traditional activities that take place around them—boating, fishing, picnicking, swimming, and courting.
