Continuing sharing our Indiana Covered Bridge trip. This was the 6th bridge we found. What a story they had to tell us at Bridgeton Mills. (Check out their site and blog because they don't have pictures of drought water.) I met a local fellow named Conrad that generously told me the story as well as the Miller. Both seemed to love sharing the story. This bridge was a victim of arson in 2005 and was rebuilt by the community in 2006 without any help from the county. The wood came from across the field, built there and moved beside the modern bridge and then set in place. A major event for this little town.
Even with such a fabulous bridge and mill for tourist to visit, it's pretty much a ghost town that comes alive one week in October.
Bridge # 7
Then on down the road we found the next bridge with its own little larger ghost town. Again, you could tell this place gets very active sometime during October. Lots of places for booths.
This one is not listed on coveredbridgemap.com because it apparently was built by an individual on their property with a sign that said if they don't know you, don't stop, but we counted it anyway.
You'll find this post at several Linky Parties. Please check them out for some great ideas.
