Located in Oxford, The Black Covered Bridge is the only covered bridge in Butler County that sits at its original site. It was built in 1868 to give access to a saw and grist mill owned by James Pugh. The bridge is one of the longest covered bridges in Ohio-definitely one of the longest ones I have ever seen. The bridge was built to cross Four Mile Creek.
This bridge is even more impressive because it was built using two different truss types (Childs and Long). This is a unique feature that many other covered bridges do not share, especially because both truss types usually do not exist within the same structure.
The bridge was recently restored in 2000 by the Oxford Museum Association. It now is open to the public year round and can also be rented out for special occasions. It's definitely a cool piece of history that is worth checking out!
