Jack’s Creek Covered Bridge

NRHP Reference Number


One of the most elementary of the state’s few remaining covered bridges, Jack’s Creek Bridge presents a nostalgic image of rural America. Like the nearby Bob White Covered Bridge (destroyed by a flash flood in 2015), the Jack’s Creek Bridge was designed by the local carpenter Walter Weaver. Charlie Vaughan served as the builder. The forty-eight-foot span was completed in 1914 and employs heavy oak framing covered with board-and-batten sheathing. A space just below the eaves was left open for light and ventilation. The Jack’s Creek Covered Bridge is preserved as a landmark under Patrick County ownership but is no longer in use, being paralleled by a modern bridge.
