Built in 1856 to cross the Buckhannon River in Barbour County, West Virginia is the Carrollton Covered Bridge. Brothers Daniel and Emmett O?Brien started the work and total costs ran up to at least $5000. It is the third oldest surviving covered bridge in all of West Virginia.

Measuring a total of almost 152 feet in length and 10.5 feet in width, the Carrollton Covered Bridge is also the second longest covered bridge in the state. It was made using wood with the patented Burr Arch design with multiple Kingpost trusses.

Restored in 2002, the Carrollton Covered Bridge is still open to traffic today. It was also a part of the National Register of Historic Places as of June 1981.
