The Sugar Creek Covered Bridge, the last covered bridge in Sangamon County, spans Sugar Creek a few hundred yards south of where early settler Robert Pulliam built a cabin during his first visit to the area in 1817.
The 60-foot bridge was built in 1880, although it has undergone several reconstructions since. It also is known as the Hedley Bridge or the Glenarm Bridge.
The bridge is in Pioneer Park, a small park owned by the Chatham Park District. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
