My husband and I had been to Gettysburg many times and for some reason had not been to this bridge. We finally decided to venture out to see this bridge because we love to take pictures of covered bridges. This bridge is beautiful; however it is in a very secluded area and we were a little alarmed when we walked... More

My friends were from the west coast and had never seen a covered bridge, so we went out one evening, walked thru the bridge, and ran across some ghost hunters, and tagged along for a fun evening.

Serenity is here, enjoy the brook flowing under the bridge, over a small dam. You won't need to spend much time here, but if you want to set up your chairs and enjoy a few special moments, this is a good place for you!

Made a point of seeing this bridge close to sunset. It's really pretty and the sun reflecting off the water was gorgeous. Interesting reading about it's history. Well worth visiting!!

I had seen pictures of it before but this trip to Gettysburg I went to see it. It is so peaceful there with the setting just beautiful. Just to stand there and think of all the history it was witness to.

My wife and I stopped here with a couple friends a little after midnight in early August. There was a small group on a haunted tour, but not much else going on. The property was technically closed, but the local police don't frequent the area and it seems like it's not much of a wild party spot as it seemed... More

It is definitely off the main path but once we found it, it was definitely worth the stop. My boyfriend and I went a little before sunset on a Sunday. It was not crowed at all and we could take our time and really enjoy the scenery.

When Visiting the Gettysburg Battlefield you most take time to visit this historic covered bridge. It's set just off he battlefield and a little less visited. The bridge it self is very well maintained. Sp if you are looking for something different just take a short drive and check this out.
