Bridgehunters roaming the state of Michigan can add the Langley Covered Bridge to their collection. Located several miles north of the town of Centreville, the county seat of St. Joseph County, this wooden covered bridge is the longest existing bridge of its kind in the state of Michigan. Because of its unique status and distinct looks, the bridge has become a popular attraction visited by local and foreign tourists.

The bridge was constructed in 1887 and named after Thomas W. Langley and his family, pioneers who established the village of Centreville during the 19th century. The red-roofed bridge measures 85.6 meters (281 ft) in length. The bridge spans the breadth of the St. Joseph River. Near the bridge is the Pahl Point Park, where visitors can set up picnics and other outdoor activities. The bridge has long been a symbol for Centreville; its annual summer festival is actually called Covered Bridge Days.
