The Oldest Covered Bridge In South Carolina, Campbells Covered Bridge Has Been Around Since 1909
Places with historical significance abound in South Carolina, but there’s one subject matter where history has slipped through Mother Nature’s fingertips throughout the years: covered bridges. While the Palmetto State has a number of modern covered bridges (you can find a list of many of them here), there is only one remaining original covered bridge and it’s a must-see.
