White's Creek Covered Bridge
"The White's Creek Covered Bridge served as an essential structure along the Big Sandy River Road. The road and its bridge were of both regional and local importance. The bridge played an important role in facilitating local economic life based on agriculture and trade. The bridge was demolished in 1957, leaving only its abutments. The abutments are considered eligible to the National Register of Historic Places as contributing structures pertaining to the nearby village of White's Creek, W.Va."
