Valley Pike Covered Bridge

  • Valley Pike Bridge was a privately owned bridge in Mason County. Built in 1864, it was a 23-foot kingpost truss design. It was disassembled in May, 2018, after the owner deemed it was structurally unsafe. The owner said he saved a lot of the material from the bridge and is hopeful it can be used in a proposed project to build a bridge with components from other lost covered bridges.
  • Formerly located on the east side of Valley Pike Road, aproximately 1 mile north of SR 3056. Valley Pike Road is approximately 0.8 miles east of the SR 9 (AA Highway) SR 10 intersection.
  • Location: N38° 40.466' W83° 52.336'
