Colvin Bridge

Colvin Covered Bridge (Bee Family)
The Colvin Bridge is one of the oldest of Bedford County's numerous covered bridges.  Originally built by J.H. Thompson in 1880, the bridge was refurbished in 1997 by Kee-ta Quay Construction.  The Colvin Bridge along with the Palo Alto Bridge is one of two multiple king post bridges in the county.  A third, the McDaniels, was destroyed by fire on Easter Sunday in 1988.  The county owned bridge is also known as the Calvin or Shiller Bridge.
