Here is a list of area attractions in and around the Alleghany Highlands.

Humpback Bridge Humpback Bridge is the only covered bridge of its type of construction now standing in the United States. Located in Alleghany County, just west of Covington, it was built in 1857. The 100-foot-long, single-span structure is four feet higher at its center than it is at either end, thus the name, ?Humpback.?

It is a grouping of persons, of all ages, who desire to improve themselves, and their world, by doing things in an atmosphere which reflects the very best Judeo-Christian traditions. YMCA programs and membership are affordable to the entire community. For more information please call (540) 962-YMCA.
