Elizabethton, Tennessee, USA

When you find a covered bridge in an urban setting, you usually suspect it was rescued from rural demise. Not so in Elizabethton. The county seat simply needed some room to grow. So, in 1881, county commissioners appropriated money for a bridge over the Doe River. Today, it is feted with a covered bridge festival every June. [2012]
