Stopped here on a motorcycle ride. Truly a beautiful site to see. Great place with excellent photo opportunities. Every shot looks like a post card. There is also a place to stop and have ice cream. Very friendly people.

Have always heard about the Covered Bridge Festival, but have never been. Decided to drive by a couple of the covered bridges on the way home from a visit to Illinois. It's not well marked on how to get here (I'm sure it would be during the festival), but we found it. Beautiful place!!

There are over 40 covered bridges in the state. This is a big one but is lost in the city clutter. Go out in the country and see one of the more pristine ones.

This appears to be the happening place to be in the summer/fall months. We went in December and NOTHING was open. Beautiful place though. And the road traveled to get here was beautiful as well.

Mike Rowe, not Dirty Jobs guy, owns and runs this masterpiece. He has a passion for it and it shows. Very informative tour and historical and still a running mill powered by waterwheel. He has complete documentation of how he, his family and friends and outside contributors brought the mill back to life. Located next to a walking covered bridge... More

It would have been nice to stop here, but the place was packed with a festival going on and NO PLACE to park to even look let alone get a picture of this bridge. Very dissatisfied with this conclusion.

This is a really nice town that still has retained the vintage covered bridge and a mill from the 1800's. we went during a festival that attracts thousands of people from across the country and still enjoyed it. Be sure to bring currency and not rely on Visa cards as not really where you would expect to find wifi.
