There are many impressive sights throughout the state of Kentucky and most of them come with a fascinating story. As a state with deep roots in the railroad industry, you’ll find both active and former railroad bridges scattered across the Bluegrass as a means of transporting goods throughout the region. If you’re looking for one of the tallest and most impressive of these, there is a historic bridge in Kentucky that comes to mind. High Bridge spans the Kentucky River near Wilmore and towers above the water as a historic landmark. You can view it up close to this day and its history is, indeed, fascinating.
Once the highest railroad bridge in the world, High Bridge stands as a reminder of our past and a place that’s both beautiful and fascinating to visit. As a historic bridge in Kentucky, it still towers over the river and surrounding area and continues to draw visitors, just as it did when it opened in the 1800s.
