We enjoyed walking across this bridge and seeing the cascading water below. The mill next to it is very historic and sells flours and breads. we especially enjoyed talking with the artisans in the barn behind the mill. Since it was a Sunday, there were three artists demonstrating their craft--a potter, a wood carver, and a rug maker. Very friendly... More

Like walking back in time. Was a rainy weather; however the owner, Mike Roe, was a great host. He gave an overview of the Bridgeton Bridge and Mill history and answered the many questions we had. Mike has owned the mill and bridge for 20 years, restoring it to perfection. This is a labour of love for he and his... More

The owners have done a marvelous job bringing the Bridgeton Cover Bridge back to life after a devasting fire. It's in a beautiful setting, with the Mill right next to it. A plus is the chance to buy products milled on the spot.

If seeing a covered bridge is on your bucket list, then this one is picture perfect. Everything that you would love to see in this restored gem - including an attached mill. The own is fantastic and more than happy to share the story of how the bridge came to be. We saw half a dozen covered bridges in the... More

The bridge and it's setting are great. The original bridge, which was built in 1868 was destroyed by arson in April 2005. I was fortunate to see the original bridge about 6 months prior to it's destruction. The bridge was rebuilt in 2006 and is very similar in to the original. The only down side is that some locals don't... More

It is so busy here during the festival but you can have fun, eat and shop all in one place! Parking is difficult but don't stop at the first lot you see and you will get better parking.

We were impressed. This is the best of the bridges. Go there last or the others will be a disappointment.

While the drive through the countryside is definitely off the beaten path and out of the way, it is a pretty drive and well worth it to reach the beautiful bridge and mill. After all, touring the covered bridges was our purpose for being in Bridgeton. Some of the bridges were just "OK", but this one was great for photography... More

This bridge is a pretty good drive off the main road but definitely worth the trip. Of all the bridges we saw in park county, this is by far my favorite. Try to plan your trip when the mill is open. There is also an old country store in Bridgeton that serves good sandwiches and hand dipped ice cream.

This was the coolest covered bridge we found on the tour of Indiana's loop of covered bridges. The mill store was neat to go into and browse around all the items for sale. The owner was super nice and gave us some history about the mill and the area.
