Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Below is a list of covered bridges in North Carolina. There are only three authentic covered bridges in the U.S. state of North Carolina of which one is historic. A covered bridge is considered authentic not due to its age, but by its construction. An authentic bridge is constructed using trusses rather than other methods such as stringers, a popular choice for non-authentic covered bridges.
