Simpson Creek Covered Bridge

Simpson Creek Covered Bridge is located in Bridgeport, West Virginia, crossing Simpson Creek off Meadowbrook Road near the entrance to the Meadowbrook Mall. The 14.25-foot-wide (4.34 m), 75-foot-long (23 m) multiple-kingpost truss bridge was built in 1881 by Asa Hugill. The current location of the bridge is not the original location. It was washed out by a flood in July 1889 and later relocated to its current location a half-mile upstream from its original spot. The Simpson Creek and Fletcher Covered Bridges, are the only two remaining covered bridges in Harrison County, are examples of this truss design.

  • In need of some TLC. Fascinating that there are still 17 covered bridges in the state. Less graffiti than some of the other's.

    It is a bridge to nowhere, which was initially disappointing. This bridge once spanned the Monocacy River, was removed in the 1930s, and is now located on the side of a road. However, the covered bridge is so well-preserved that the disappointment was short lived. A wonderful piece of our history.

  • Nicely preserved and a cool covered bridge. Good place to eat outside as they have picnic tables inside the bridge. Shame it was moved, but necessary
