It will be a year in October I had visited with my good friend Anne, and her wonderful son Kyle to Historic Gettysburg!. It's like it was yesterday! Great and would go again! A ghost hunters tour taken to Sachs Covered Bridge brought home, to me, the pain and anguish of ALL Gettysburg! Those who were Soldiers and citizens prisoners... More

we've been going to Gettysburg for over 30yrs and sachs bridge is one of our favorite spots. it's quiet and peaceful there when the ghost hunters aren't there,and when they are it's fun and interesting to listen to their stories.

We drove around for quite some time 32 years ago to visit this bridge... my dad took our picture we captured then and hired an artist to paint this bridge onto an old carpenters saw. I had to bring my kids here as well on our trip and it is just beautiful. A great place to take pictures and much... More

I used directions from Trip Advisor and had a quick visit to the covered bridge. There is parking so you can get out and take pictures and even walk along the bridge.

I set my GPS to find Sachs's Covered Bridge this past Monday evening, and I did so without a problem. It was a beautiful sight to see. If you know the history of this bridge it is even more awesome. Supposedly this bridge is haunted, so what isn't in Gettysburg ? The good thing is that no one has been... More

Not that I've seen many covered bridges and I admit I first learned of them via a novel, but I have now seen a handful around Pennsylvania and this one is worth finding. I found it interesting that many covered bridges have been removed but this one has been replaced after flood damage. I agree with the sentiments on one... More

We visited at midnight with a guide - definitely haunted! If you can, walk past the bridge to see the old field hospital nearby.

Its worth the drive south of Gettysburg down the lanes to find Sachs covered bridge. A bridge that if it could talk would have so much to say about all the history made around it.

We enjoy going to Sachs Covered Bridge. It is a shame all the graffiti that has happened over the years.
