We had never seen a covered bridge before and enjoyed walking across a piece of history. There is a marker there explaining the bridge.

This is a beautifully restored period covered bridge used by both Confederate and Union soldiers during the Battle of Gettysburg! Well worth the visit!

Very cool looking bridge. Looks like it could be a nice fishing spot as well. Took a few pictures and caught some orbs. It was raining so we didnt stay long.
