Nice and close to Gettysburg and relatively easy to find but it was just the metal frame, not "covered"

I here this is the second bridge.. I took pictures and found nothing.. NO ghost no spirits.. but the bridge is very nice. you can not travel across it in a vehicle, just walking across it.

We went out of our way to find this covered bridge. There is not much parking and it is at a dead end. Glad we took the time, wish people had more respect for the bridge and not put graffiti inside of it.

My wife and I went on a covered bridge hunt while in the area. Interesting history behind this one. There were a lot of people around this location for it being November

We heard about this bridge on one of our ghost tours and found it quite interesting. It was a little eerie and would be a great place to visit at night to look for activity.

Was a little hard to find but we did. the drive was very pretty. The bridge was historic and the surrounding were very pretty with the dam and waterfall. The structure was massive and interesting in the way things were constructed way back when.

Sad history that surrounds this bridge. Got lots of neat pictures while visiting this bridge at 1am. Make sure to bring "Tennessee" a cigarette!

We visited the historic Sachs Covered Bridge on a crisp fall night, and when we walked onto it there was nice moonlight. As we were exiting the bridge a storm burst hit us that blew down large tree limbs and much cold rain. Was pretty...More

Actually Sachs bridge is outside the town proper. It took us a bit of looking till we found it but was worth the drive. Got some great early a.m. pics. Good luck and hope you enjoy your trip.

Looking for authentic hauntings in Gettysburg? (14 Replies)
My husband and I will be spending a 3 day weekend in Gettysburg from Oct 1st to the 4th and I am wondering if there are actually any "authentic" haunting spots? Have any of you actually seen any ghostly encounters? I was reading that Sachs Covered Bridge is quite haunted. Is it really? Or any other spots that have ghostly sightings I would be quite interested in. Thanks! Sandi

If you haven't already done so, you may want to read one or more of the many books which have been written that give accounts of ghostly encounters on the battlefield and around the town of Gettysburg. Mark Nesbitt, a former park ranger, has a series entitled Ghosts of Gettysburg, which we have used to "search" for spirits. You can also do an online search for stories to get some ideas of where to look. Sachs Covered Bridge is reputed to be haunted. My SIL tells a story in which she saw a...More
