So my family and I actually stop in here a lot. Bridgeton is one of our favorite places to fish and play in the creek. Its always a plus when the mill is open and we get some ice cream. I personally like it better...More

This was my second stop on the "red" covered bridge driving tour from Rockville. The brochure says "If you haven't seen the Bridgeton Mill, you haven't seen Indiana!" I thought that was hilarious, and then I ended up stopping. It's a short stop: park, walk...More

Took my Dad to check this place out on Father's Day. He lives in Indianapolis that was about an hour and a half Drive but well worth it! The bridge itself is quite amazing make sure you stop and check out the mill as well!...More

This is an amazing place and the story about the current owners of the mill is outstanding. Be sure to ask about it. I think there only a couple of permanent business in town and around 100 places for vendors during the covered bridge festival....More

We toured 35 covered bridges in Parke County and this was, by far, the best one to take pictures of and the Bridgeton Mill was quite an experience to see.... the owner of the Mill was a person of interest to talk to.....

Beautiful covered bridge and mill, still operable, with historic equipment. The owner/operator takes the time to explain the milling process. If you love covered bridges, this one's a must. Long and full of character, it's an easy walk to the other side of the stream....More

Growing up in Parke County, Indiana, this was the first covered bridge I remember visiting. It is a very interesting bridge and has been destroyed and rebuilt a couple of times. It also has an old grist mill attached.

Mary, the festival is from 10/13-10/22. It will be very crowded so get a map and start driving early. Hard to find close lodging at such a late date.
