Where: Waldo in Talladega County, Alabama
When Built: 1858
GPS Coordinates: 33°22′44.78″N, 86°01′43.87″W
Originally built on an old Socopatoy Indian trail behind Riddle's Mill (a grist mill which was later converted into the Waldo Town Hall and then a restaurant), today, the 115-foot-long Waldo Bridge is on private property that spans Talladega Creek. While it’s the second-oldest surviving covered bridge in the state, it’s the only one on our list not being maintained.
