It takes awhile to find the bridges-suggest getting a map! The bridges maps are more helpful than you might think.

We went just after the festival was over but they were still open for people to see. The parking was good, free and less crowds. A lot of history with the feel of what the past would be like. The old rustic bridge and store were great. The changing of the trees only added to the beauty. They had port... More

As far as covered bridges go, this is a very nice one. I'm glad they rebuilt it. We went there for the covered bridge festival. Be sure to get a map so you don't miss the Bridgeton Rd. when in Rockville. We missed it and had quite an adventure...were glad to get to this bridge and the festival. Hope the... More

I have been going here for many years and it is still as beautiful as it has always been. It is also a home for the Covered bridge festival. Don't miss out on this beautiful small town and its ambience

Come see the bridge, visit the mill. You can also get some hand dipped ice cream. Rockville Indiana had several color coded drives to take you to see covered bridges.

It's a very nice rebuilt covered bridge. The original was burned down due to arson. It's a nice rel;axing spot and perfect for photography lovers.
