The Alamuchee-Bellamy Covered Bridge is a historic covered span located in Livingston, Alabama. It was built in 1861 and originally crossed the Sucarnoochee River. It was built by Confederate Army Captain William Alexander Campbell Jones.

During the Civil War, the Alamuchee-Bellamy Covered Bridge was used as an access route by the Confederate forces to Mississippi. However, by 1924, it was replaced with a concrete bridge, so it was moved 5 miles south to cross over the Alamuchee Creek. This is where it got a part of its name.

In 1958, it was closed to motor traffic and was replaced by a concrete bridge. It was again moved in 1971 by the Sumter County Historical Society to its current location crossing over the Duck Pond inside the campus of the University of West Alabama.
