The Longest Wooden Covered Bridge In Kentucky, Beech Fork Covered Bridge, Is 210 Feet Long
Editor’s Note: Sadly, the Beech Fork Covered Bridge was completely destroyed by a fire in early March 2021. We are devastated by this loss and hope these photos and words remain as a reminder of this historic bridge.
The modern day highways that wind through Kentucky are certainly convenient and efficient, but many aren’t filled with the same sense of history as a road that was created in the early days of our state. Many of these historic roadways have been preserved and some include features such as a covered bridge that would take travelers across a creek or dip in the land. If you’ve ever wondered about the longest covered bridge in Kentucky, then head to Mooresville and the Beech Fork Covered Bridge.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The longest wooden covered bridge in Kentucky may have been restored over the years, but it still holds plenty of history and a sense of how things used to be in the Bluegrass.
