Very scenic!

This whole area looks like its stuck in a time capsule. All the old shops and buildings and the mill are all so cool!

We toured the area to see the covered bridges. We managed to flit all over the countryside and see 20 bridges in one day on a motorcycle! I would suggest a jeep or other mode of transportation.

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.
