The Bunker Hill Covered Bridge is one of two covered bridges left in North Carolina, (the other being the Pisgah Covered Bridge in Randolph County), and is possibly the last wooden bridge in the United States with Haupt truss construction. It was built in 1895 by Andrew Loretz Ramsour (1817–1906) in Claremont, North Carolina, and crosses Lyle Creek.

The bridge was designated a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 2001 and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • What a cool little treat on our road trip. We love covered bridges and had to turn around and check this one out. So much history here.
  • Been seeing folks post pictures of this place for a while. On a trip back home saw the exit and ventured to it. Only a few miles off the interstate, definitely worth a quick trip to check it out.
