Scenic Adair County: Covered bridge, Barnetts Creek RD

2005-11-02 - Barnetts Creek near Pellyton, Adair CO, KY - Photo Linda Waggener. Eli Miller's covered bridge spanning Barnetts Creek frames one of the prettiest Amish farmsteads in Adair County. The bridge is about two years old now. It is located less than one-half mile beyond Barnetts Creek United Methodist Church. The bridge is approximately 1.6 miles from KY 206 at Pellyton, KY. So far as we've been able to determine, it is the only covered bridge in Adair County, and is certainly a welcome addition to one of the most delightful country lanes anywhere. The bridge was built by the Millers, who constructed the walls in the field in th bottom, but Joe L. Barbee put the walls in place with his crane. The creek name is pronounced "Barn-its," while the Adair County family name of the same spelling is "Bar-net."
