Parke County Indiana/Bridgeton covered Bridge

My husband, youngest daughter and I went to Bridgeton yesterday so I could get some photographs in. Last time I went it was a very overcast day and it really didn’t make for very nice pictures. Yesterday was a great day for picture taking. The blue skies really popped for me. It was a little on the chilly side, but the scene made it worth it.

Here is a little information on this site.

Welcome to Bridgeton!

The Bridgeton Covered Bridge Association would like to thank everyone who contributed to the rebuilding of the Bridgeton Covered Bridge. They would also encourage everyone to come to Bridgeton and see the new bridge. Click here to see how the bridge was rebuilt.
If you enjoy shopping, then you’ll love our authentic old mill town. Bridgeton rolls out the welcome mat for six special events each year. We’re at our biggest and best during the Covered Bridge Festival in October when, in addition to our fine shops, we have over 400 vendors offering quality crafts, antiques, collectibles, and great food!
Bridgeton is home to the oldest continuously operating mill west of the Allegheny Mountains. The mill overlooks Indiana’s most famous covered bridge and waterfall. The first two blocks of the town of Bridgeton were placed on the National Register Historic District in 1992.
Some shops are opened only for the Covered Bridge Festival but the beauty and charm of this old mill town brings pleasure to all visitors every day of the year. A few shops are open year round and others are opened weekends during the summer!
