The Longest Covered Bridge In Missouri, Locust Creek Covered Bridge, Is 151 Feet Long
Get a glimpse into days gone by. To the days of covered bridges, horses and buggies, and a simpler time in Missouri and in America. Once upon a time, Americans crossed more than 12,000 covered bridges across the United States. Today, that number has dwindled to a mere 1,000. Only four remain in Missouri. Among those that remain is Locust Creek Covered Bridge, the longest covered bridge in Missouri.
