Built in 1865, Beech Fork Bridge originally carried the Springfield and Chaplin Turnpike across the Beech Fork River in northwestern Washington county. No longer in use, it is just off KY 458 north of Mooresville and is also known as the Mooresville Bridge. It is a two span Burr truss bridge, each 102 feet long, making it the longest covered bridge in Kentucky.

This is one of Kentucky's remaining covered bridges.
