The Oldest Covered Bridge In North Carolina Has Been Around Since 1895
Old-fashioned covered bridges from a bygone era are hard to come by in the Tar Heel State. In fact, only two such bridges have survived the test of time in North Carolina. The oldest of the two, the Bunker Hill Covered Bridge, is a treasure. Not only is it listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s also one of only three National Civil Engineering Landmarks in the state (accompanied by the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Cape Hatteras Light).
The other remaining covered bridge in the Tar Heel State isn’t the oldest, but at 140 feet in length, it’s the longest. Keep reading to learn more about why you should also visit Pisgah Covered Bridge in North Carolina!
