A great place for a short relaxing visit. The bridge is a historic treasure for the area with interesting architecture. The trees in the park are absolutely gorgeous.

Wow, what a bridge. I have never seen a covered bridge before. This is a nice attraction. There seems to be some good history behind it.

I was in a quick hurry and could not spend an adequate amount of time visiting this attraction. It's super easy to find and if i'm in the area again, I will return to actually view the property.

This is a beautiful place, especially in th fall. Worth the drive as it is hidden off the main Hwy 278. Perfect for a picnic lunch.

Good little picnic spot & background for taking pictures. Sun comes in nicely on the bridge in the late afternoon.
