The Oldest Remaining Covered Bridge In North Carolina Is A Hidden Gem Everyone Should Visit
North Carolina only has two remaining covered bridges from a bygone era. The oldest of the two is one that is often overlooked as a day trip destination; however, it’s a sight everyone should see at least once – especially native North Carolinians.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Keep up with the progress by following the official Facebook page for the Bunker Hill Covered Bridge here. Remember: until posted otherwise on their Facebook page, the bridge remains closed for repairs.
The Bunker Hill Covered Bridge is located at 4160 US-70, Claremont, NC 28610. Once the repairs are complete, the bridge will be open from dawn to dusk. Parking is free.
