Beautiful Covered Bridge

Easy to find. This is not far from Gettysburg battlefields and General Pickett's Buffets. Nice bridge to photograph. Unhappy to see the graffiti written inside the bridge.

I found this bridge while looking through Trip Advisor and I'm so happy our family went to check it out. What a great piece of history tucked back into the country side. Beautiful place to stop for some pictures. Bring some bread crumbs and feed the ducks. Unfortunately people like to carve their names into the side of the bridge... More

this is near the Eisenhower Farm and there is much farmland around this. Folks fish here. this is the one of the only covered historic bridges in Adams County. The battlefield is nearby so this makes an easy drive from there.

it's a little off the beaten path, but if you like covered bridges this one is very well maintained. they is a wheelchair ramp to get to from the parking area to the bridge. it's very peaceful and pretty there.

It is an OK place. One more thing to do in Gettysburg. Nothing to miss out if you do not visit. There are too many things to do in Gettysburg any ways.

We have been here several times and have got some crazy pictures from this bridge. My opinion it's def hunted. 15 minute drive from town but def worth it.

Easy to get to and easy to walk around. There is a wheelchair ramp to get to the bridge as well. Went during the day and then again for a ghost tour. I don't think ghosts are hanging around but it is a nice peaceful area. Seemed to be a popular place for people getting family and engagement photos.

Not much to see here but it's a nice break from the crowds. Lots of history if you do your research.

I had trouble inputting the address in my Garmin, so here is the coordinate: N39 47.854 W77 16.568 I went on vacation in Pa and decided when I saw Gettysburg, I would stop and see this bridge. I didn't know that I was going to pass so many covered bridges in Pa. I wanted to see the beauty of another... More
