Humpback Bridge

The only covered bridge of its type of construction now standing in the U.S. The bridge was built in 1857 and is a 100 foot long single span structure, 4 feet higher in the center than at either end, thus the name “Humpback.” There is a five-acre wayside park at the site, complete with restroom facilities and picnic tables. The site is also used as a wedding venue and for Easter Sunrise Services (weddings must be coordinated with VDOT).
