    The Buckeye Furnace Covered Bridge formerly carried Buckeye Road over Little Raccoon Creek at Buckeye Furnace in Jackson County, Ohio. It was constructed in 1872 by Robert W. Smith using his patent for the Smith through truss design, rehabilitated in 1936, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.

    The crossing was later rehabilitated but taken out of service by 2010. It was functionally replaced by a modern concrete structure and the covered bridge moved to a temporary location in front of the company store at Buckeye Furnace.
