Remember when...?

The Bunker Hill Covered Bridge, located near Claremont, is one of only two original remaining covered bridges in North Carolina, the other being Mt. Pisgah in Randolph County. The Bunker Hill Covered Bridge was built in 1895 by Andy L. Ramsour.
Originally constructed as an open span, the Bunker Hill Covered Bridge, whose roof is ninety-one feet long, was covered in 1900. In 1921 its wooden shingles were replaced with a tin roof.
Today the bridge still stands as a historical landmark and a popular destination for visitors and photographers.
