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.
One of the many WV covered bridges. This one not really impressive
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
Very nice spot for a picnic. Easy to access.
If a rather interesting place with a good history about the bridge. Only probably about 2-3 cars parking. It has a small picnic table on the bridge
Nice place for photos. Have to just angle them right so u don't get the road or buildings or fences.
it's a wonderful experience just to stop here and look at this bridge and read about the history of it wonderful history of West Virginia I recommend it very highly Gary Taylor
