Elizabethton Covered Bridge

Built for $3000 in 1882, the covered bridge in Elizabethton, TN has stood the test of time. The 137 foot long bridge, which spans the Doe River, has become the most recognized and photographed landmark in Carter County. Click here to learn more about the bridge's 125 year history. It wasn't very long ago that you could still drive across the bridge -- today however, only pedestrian traffic is allowed. The 40th annual Covered Bridge Festival begins this week and runs from June 6-9th and includes music, arts and crafts, classic cars, food and, of course, fun.
