How many covered bridges in Alabama are there?  

At the time of this writing, there are 11 covered bridges throughout the state of Alabama. Six of those bridges are still in the same place they were built, and seven have been relocated at some point during their lives. Each bridge brings something unique and special to the table, so to speak; to visit them takes us back to a special time when things were quiet and simple. We’re not sure what it is about covered bridges, but it sure is special! Some of our favorite covered bridges in Georgia include:

  • The Old Union Crossing Covered Bridge was built in 1863.
  • The Coldwater Covered Bridge was built in 1850.
  • The Alamuchee-Bellamy Covered Bridge was built in 1861.


Of course, not all of the covered bridges in Alabama are quite that old – many were built in the 1900s and some in the 2000s. No matter its age, though, a covered bridge is a sight to be seen, especially during fall.
