Larkin Covered Bridge is a historic wooden covered bridge formerly located in Milford Mills, Pennsylvania which was inundated by the Marsh Creek Dam in Chester County, Pennsylvania. It is a 60-foot-long (18 m), Burr truss bridge, constructed in 1881. It was moved in 1972, with the construction of the Marsh Creek Dam. It formerly crossed a branch of Marsh Creek.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1] In 2006 it was moved again, adjacent to the Eagle Bypass. It currently spans nothing.
