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.

Beautiful bridge that demands great respect. It's a place where you can reflect of all the history and lives lost.

Historic Civil war era covered bridge. Remote location surrounded by woods and river just a 10 min car ride away from town.

We have visited this bridge several times and I highly recommend a nighttime visit if you only have one chance to go when you're in Gettysburg. We did capture several digital images that appeared to be paranormal though of course they're up to interpretation by others. Worth the 10-minute drive out of town to check out, and bring your ghost-hunting... More

Great place to go at night to listen and watch for ghost. It is dark and spooky. There is a lot of wildlife so be careful on what you think is a spirit it just might be a bullfrog.

Stopped to check out this haunted bridge after touring Gettysburg. Although, the bridge has been rebuilt, it's still very pretty. Cars cannot drive across it though - you park nearby and walk across it. I definitely enjoyed my brief stop here.

Nice, charming bridge. Really liked that we could walk out a little into the causeway to get some pictures.
