Bob White Covered Bridge was a rare 80-foot queen post construction over the Smith River that was built in 1921. It served as a connection between Route 8 and Smith River Church of the Brethren on the south side of the Smith River.

Bob White Covered Bridge was designed and constructed by Walter Weaver whose descendents still live in the community the bridge is located in. Open your mind to yesteryear when horse-drawn wagons and Model Ts parked in these “kissing bridges” which provided shelter from the weather.

Be sure to visit in June when the bridges come to life with horse-drawn wagon and hay rides during the County sponsored Covered Bridge festival.
