Neat to walk across this historic site. Took lots of photos. Thought about buying the Civil War Hospital House up for sale at that time just walking distance from the bridge. Will have to try one night to see if it really is haunted.

If you also enjoy the Ghost Hunting experiences of Gettysburg, you will want to stop here, It appears to be a covered bridge during the daylight hours, but for us ghost enthusiasts, we know there is much more taking place and especially at night. Get out your cameras, flashlights, emf detectors, voice recorders, rods or whatever you may have and... More

Very cool covered bridge. Very well kept and some walking trails nearby. Had a picnic lunch at the Sachs covered bridge and it was lovely.

This was simply a beautiful spot/scenery. The road wasn't marked very well so keep your eyes open because you will pass it up. It was a nice break from all the traffic. You could stay there10-30 minutes. Make sure to Google it when you get there to have a better understanding of its history since there wasn't much there.

One of the most beautiful sights in the Gettysburg area. Possibly haunted, most likely used by Lee's army during its retreat. A nice quick stop while touring the region.

This is one of my favorite places in Gettysburg. It is hard to imagine the fighting and peril that occurred on this beautiful site. It is one of the most peaceful places you will find. Watch out for those rowdy ghost hunters.. They stir things up and can interfere with the peaceful vibe. If you find that you are one... More

If the chance arises that you can do this tour - usually on a Saturday eve - go for it! It's alot of fun and our guide Dwayne was amazing!... More
