Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Lewisburg's Herns Mill Covered Bridge is one of only two covered bridges remaining in Greenbrier County. It was completed in 1884 to provide access to the S.S. Herns Mill and to homesteaders living on the west side of Milligan Creek. Constructed in the Queen post truss design, it originally costing $800. Renovations were made in 2000 -- concrete abutments and steel I-beams, guard walls, portal timbers, a new metal roof and siding -- to ensure the cover bridge's longevity.
The bridge is approximately 54 feet long and 10.6 feet wide and is open to travel.
