It was really hard to find. But well worth it. It's absolutely beautiful. They need to post better signs on how to get to it.

Not to many covered bridges around. It's a little hard to find but worth the quick trip from downtown. Great location if you like to take pictures. There is historical information provided at the site.

Hard to find, must have a local give you some directions, but well worth a stop. Historic dating from 1852. Well kept and a nice surprise on our trip.

We went here on a ghost tour with after dark investigations. Wow is all I can say. What a wonderful place to go and a perfect company to go with. My only regret is that I was not able to go back the next day because we had a tight schedule. But there is always next time. It is so... More

You can feel the history as you walk through this beautifully restored covered bridge. For a history buff like myself it was an emotional experience. Read the history than spend some time at this wonderful piece of history. And it's free.

Nothing exciting. A bridge at the end of a farm road. Nice little creek that runs underneath. My wife and i went. Stayed 10 minutes, took a picture or two and that was it. I know one of the ghost tours goes out there at night and that would scare you for sure

You can drive to it but it is blocked off so vehicles can no longer drive over it. It's been restored and looks beautiful and makes for a great backdrop for pictures.

The Sachs Covered Bridge is a quaint little visit. Beautiful setting and peaceful. So much history has passed beneath it's beams, hard to imagine. One tip...go in the daytime or be overwhelmed by the ghost hunters after dark.

Beautiful covered bridge. One of 4 in the area. Bring your fishing pole and fishing net for crayfishing!
