We drove over to the bridge early one morning to get some nice photos of the bridge - we have no bridges around like this back home! It is a quiet site that definitely makes for some nice photos. There is an eerie feeling however that does seem to persist around the bridge, likely a result of the history of... More

Sach's Bridge is a beautiful piece of history. The design is unique among covered bridges. It is also reportedly haunted. Stories, and phots, abound form this location. One story is of desserters being hung from the bridge as a message to all others. Gorgeous setting for wonderful pictures as well.

Sachs Bridge is a very historic and beautiful place to visit. It is a very tranquil place early in the morning. The setting is that of a postcard. A nice place to relax and reflect. With the history surrounding the bridge, it also eminates a somewhat eerie feel. A Gettysburg must see.

There were too many people here to really experience the bridge, but at least we got to see it. I would make the trip there again.

This is a well-photographed site where you can capture a great view from the main road bridge which will show the river and trees along the river bank.

I really wanted to see this bridge on this trip to Gettysburg. This is the bridge that Lee and his defeated troops beat it out of town over following the battle at Gettysburg. This bridge was almost lost for good when a flood caused the bridge to break away and float down stream. Thank God they saved and restored it.... More

The Bridge is a beautiful picnic destination and place for picnics and just resting. We like to bike around the Battlefield and the back roads of Gettysburg and we always find ourselves at the Bridge for a rest stop.

Little difficult to find initially, but then again it was dark. Went right to it the next day. Pretty neat landmark to visit.

We visited the Sachs Covered Bridge the morning after snowfall and were able to capture some phenominal pictures of nature settling on a beautiful man made creation. This historic bridge is in excellent condition and well worth the short venture off the main road to explore.
