Constructed in 1877,1 3 6 7 the covered span was originally constructed with a single 124-foot Burr truss with a toll gate house.4 In 1913, the span was renovated by Louis Bower of Flemingsburg,5 whose grandfather constructed the Switzer Covered Bridge.6 It was again renovated in 1937 by his son Stock. On December 30, 1974, the Colville Covered Bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places 6 and two years later, it became the last surviving span of its type in Bourbon County.5 Flooding in 1997 washed out the bridge, however, it was rebuilt in 2001.1 3
