If you like historical sites, this gem in western Indiana is worth the visit. It was built in the 1820s and rebuilt 50 years later. The Bridge, itself, was again updated 13 years ago to ensure visitor safety. The mill is still a working mill where visitors can buy a variety of flour mixtures. There are also local artisans on...

This is a very beautiful covered bridge. Great for artists and history buffs, or just if you want to enjoy a nice view. The inside needs a little sprucing up at the Mill, but they still grind grains! Quiet time to go, on a rainy day, we really enjoyed it.

What a wonderful setting and bridge construction. Enjoyed reading the graffiti on the inside but would rather it wasn't there. This was my favorite bridge that we saw last weekend. Several shops in the area to browse if you have time.

This is a favorite place for taking photos. The Bridge and the Mill backdrop are great. The local businesses aren't all open year round so be sure to check if you want to visit them beforehand

This bridge is a must see for anyone visiting our county. Beautifully rebuilt after a tragic fire destroyed the original.

This bridge is right downtown in the very tiny town of Bridgeton. It is right next door to an old mill which is still in operation. Up the hill from the mill were some buildings offering many different items for sale (mostly handmade crafts). The mill also had a small snack bar which offered ice cream too. Only foot traffic...

Even though the covered bridge is the highlight in Bridgeton, there is plenty to see and people to meet in this lovely little town. Dave and his family have made it their love in life to aid in the restoration of the covered bridge and they also own and operate the Bridgeton Mill where they sell home grown ground wheat,... More

Nicely restored bridge and mill to see if your passing through the area but I wouldn't drive to far out of my way. Small little shop inside to buy some baking mixes but not much else to offer in the town.
