Excerpt from Wikipedia

Bennett's Mill Covered Bridge, near Greenup, Kentucky, was built in 1855. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.

It brings Brown Covered Bridge Road (County Route 2125) over Tygarts Creek, west of Greenup.

It was defended by two hidden cannon during the American Civil War.

At 195 feet (59 m) long, it is the longest single-span covered bridge in Kentucky.
