Tunnel Vision

The farther back you can look, the farther
forward you are likely to see.

— Winston Churchill —

Bunker Hill Covered Bridge, near Claremont, North Carolina, is one of two remaining covered bridges in the state. The bridge was originally constructed in 1895 as an open span. In 1900, it was covered with wooden shingles, which were later replaced with tin. It is 85 feet long and sits 25 feet above Lyles Creek.

The bridge was donated to the Catawba County Historical Association in 1985 and was restored in 1994. On July 30, 2001, the Bunker Hill Covered Bridge was named a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by the committee on the History and Heritage of American Civil Engineering of the American Society of Civil Engineers.

  1. Hey you!

    I’ve been thinking about you! How are you? How have you been? I’d love to have another hockey/chat session with you this season. I miss you! I saw Nella a couple of weeks ago and we both were wondering about you and how you were!
