This historic covered bridge built in 1852, was used by both Union and Confederate troops during the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. Union Forces crossed on July 1st and Confederate Troops fled the battle on July 4th.
Designated as Pennsylvania’s “most historic bridge” in 1938, it is also registered on the National Register of Historic Places. Built by David Stoner for $1,544, this 100-foot long and 15-foot wide bridge crosses over Marsh Creek and is a beautiful place for a walk and picnic (and it may even be haunted).
