Sach's Covered Bridge is an historic Gettysburg landmark. Many locals know it is haunted. Visitors take orb pictures and many spirits have been seen. Unsubstantiated rumors say three soldiers were hanged from the bridge after the Battle. But whether you see ghostly visitors or not, the Bridge is a PA classic structure dating from well before the Battle. Last time... More

Really wanted to visit this bridge, but had a hard time finding it. A bit off the beaten path, but definitely worth the effort.

When in Gettysburg make sure you stop by and see this bridge, lots of history just too bad so many people have to carve stuff into the wood.

Highly recommend this location for anyone who wants to do a true ghost hunt. We chatted with a couple of soldiers and also talked to a loved one who passed away 20 years ago.
