The Oldest Covered Bridge In Kentucky Has Been Around Since 1835
There are many fine examples of the skill and talents Kentuckians have had over the years as they built our now historic buildings and structures. From country churches that have spanned over a century to tall, ornate buildings in our largest cities, the history of Kentucky can be found in these standing works of art. Another fascinating way to experience this is by visiting the several historic covered bridges throughout the Bluegrass. Considered to be the oldest covered bridge in Kentucky, the Dover Covered Bridge in Mason County has been through so much, yet still stands to this day.
