The Huffman Covered Bridge was built in 1914 south of Middleburg, Ohio. The property was listed on the National Register on 1975-03-04.

The wooden Kingpost truss bridge stood 50 feet long over the Middle Fork Creek. The bridge stood until a devastating flood washed out the supports in 1998, carrying away the bridge. The same flood took with it six victims.[2]
