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).
