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.
