Tour takes approximately 5 hours. With only 13 Covered Bridges left in Kentucky, we can boast 8 bridges in our five county area of Northern Kentucky. The most famous and widely photographed bridge is Fleming County’s Goddard White Bridge. Built in the 1820s, it is the only surviving example of Ithiel Town Lattice design in Kentucky.

Construction of the other seven Covered Bridges range from 1835 to 1874; designs include Smith truss construction, Burr truss design, King post with laminated arch design and a multiple King post design. Visit Blue Licks Battlefield State Park Resort.

General Daniel Boone and the Kentucky Militia were ambushed here in 1782 in Kentucky’s last battle of the Revolutionary War. Throughout history the salt springs at Blue Licks attracted pre-historic mastodons, buffalo and formed a center of Indian life.

Guided tours available at the Old Washington Visitor Center.
