Statts Mill

            Originally crossing Tug Fork of Big Mill Creek in Jackson County, this 11.25-foot-wide, 97-foot-long Long truss bridge was built in 1888 by Henry Hartley at a cost of $1,788.35.

            As part of a 1982 flood control project, the Statts Mill Covered Bridge was relocated to the Cedar Lakes FFA-FHA Conference Center near the Fairplain Interchange off I-77, three miles from its original site, in 1983.  Reconstructed across one of the conference center’s ponds at a cost of $104,000, it now serves campers and other pedestrians at the center.
