If you enjoy old rural architecture, then you must cost this working covered bridge& mill. Good sandwiches & ice cream. Serene & relaxing!

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.

This is one of Indiana's attractions, and is such a beautiful place to go. the covered bridge is a great place to go for a family picnic, p[lay in the water, and for taking pictures whether it be for family photos, pictures with friends, or for senior pictures.

Rustic covered bridges are a charm. Parke and Putnam county Indiana have majestic ones. Bridgeston is one of those gems and as is Mansfield. See it and be amazed.

This is one of my favorite covered bridges in the area. The scenery is beautiful and it's very relaxing to listen to the water crash. If you're going to do a driving route of the covered bridges I recommend going in the winter when there is some snow on the ground. It makes for great pictures!
