There are only four covered bridges left in MO and all of them are historic sites now. Sandy Creek is about 15-20 minutes from Timbercreek and is quite charming. It was built following the Civil War in 1872 as part of a road that connected the county seat of Hillsboro in Jefferson County to the courthouse in St. Louis. It is still maintained in its original red color however it is only open to foot traffic now.
