Mason County KY - Valley Pike Covered Bridge
3084-3166 Valley Pike
Maysville, KY 41056

It's really rather embarrassing having this one on the list but since we made the effort to go there I thought we would include it.  I'll say one thing for the 23 foot kingpost truss design bridge; it's all original.  At least it looks like nothing has been done since it was built during the Civil War in 1864.  In fact, this is the first bridge we've visited that was built during the Civil War.  This bridge is not very far from Dover bridge.  We just went south on KY3113 and turned right on Valley Pike.
