The 3 Longest Covered Bridges In West Virginia All Survived The Civil War

Hailing from a bygone era when horses were more common on roads than automobiles, covered bridges provide our busy, modern senses with charming reminders of less frenetic times. And in West Virginia, we still get to enjoy at least 17 of these historic structures.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
