Beech Fork Covered Bridge

  • The Beech Fork Bridge once carried the Springfield and Chaplin Turnpike across the Beech Fork River in northwestern Washington county. No longer in use, it is just off KY 458 north of Mooresville and is also known as the Mooresville Bridge. Built in 1865, it is a two span Burr truss bridge, each 102 feet long, making it the longest covered bridge in Kentucky.
  • West side of SR 458 approximately 2.5 north of SR 55.
  • Location: N37° 49.723' W85° 15.407'
