Switzer Covered Bridge

Historic Switzer covered bridge over North Elkhorn Creek in Franklin County, Kentucky was designated the official state covered bridge of Kentucky in 1998. Built about 1855 and restored in 1906, then closed to traffic in 1954. The bridge was again restored in 1997 after a flood swept the bridge off its foundation.

 

The Switzer covered bridge was posted to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 (NRHP Structure #74000875).
