About the Honey Run Covered Bridge Association
When the Honey Run Covered Bridge was destroyed in the November 2018 Camp Fire, a true icon was lost. Honey Run Covered Bridge was constructed over Butte Creek in 1887. Built with Pratt style trusses some fifty years after their invention in the 1840’s by Thomas and Caleb Pratt, the bridge was 238 feet long. It was unique due to its three unequal spans (30 feet and 128 feet and 80 feet), and because the center bridge housing was higher than that of its two end housing. The rustic thoroughfare sat between Chico and Paradise over Butte Creek, and was the only three-span truss bridge of its kind in the United States. It was a monument to California’s Gold Rush and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
On October 27, 2020, Butte County transferred Bridge ownership to HRCBA with the understanding that the HRCBA will rebuild the Bridge with private donations. The total cost of the rebuild is $2.9 million, and HRCBA has already raised $1.1 million.
