Grange City Covered Bridge

The Grange City covered bridge crosses Fox Creek in southeastern Fleming County, near Hillsboro. The bridge spans 86 feet and was built sometime between 1865-70. It carried traffic until it was bypassed by Highway 111 and closed in 1968, after one hundred years in service. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, and is one of only three remaining covered bridges in Fleming County, Kentucky.
