Sachs covered bridge is a must see when in Gettysburg. It's close to the battlefield and museums. The weather was perfect the day we visited and the bridge reflected in the water so beautifully. Very quiet & serene. We took a short walk around the area and captured a lot of fabulous photos. There is a small stone lot to... More

I love covered bridges to begin with so of course Sachs Bridge was a "must" visit site. Nice place to take a stroll and imagine all those soldiers crossing it. Didn't see any ghosts the day we were there, but it's said that it's haunted. If I were a believer of haunting, I would think the entire area would be... More

Interesting place to stop by and take some nice photographs. Have heard that it is haunted, but have heard that about all of Gettysburg.

Great place to stop and reflect on what happened in Gettysburg. We stopped as the sun was setting. Just beautiful.

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. We took some advice to find it, but found out later we took the most difficult route. If you want to visit this bridge, take Business Route 15 South to Millerstown Road where you'll take a... More

It was great to see and walk in the Sachs Covered Bridge. We arrived at the bridge during sunset, which was a perfect time. This is particularly amazing as the number of covered bridges are waning.

I have been to the bridge several times during the day, as well as at night during paranormal investigations..... It doesn't disappoint! The nearby field hospital and the significance during the battle make for a spooky atmosphere after dark, but be warned that rowdy local teens sometimes like to visit, too. A beautiful location during the day, very photogenic.

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.
