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.
