Bridgeton Mill and Covered Bridge - #1013

bridgeton

The Bridgeton bridge is 1 of 31 covered bridges located in Parke County, Indiana. Most bridges are still used for vehicle and pedestrian traffic.  They include a couple of warnings; "one lane only" and "cross at a walk".

The original 'Burr Arch' bridge was built in 1872.  The mill, a working flour mill, was built in 1823 and rebuilt in 1870.  The mill is open for viewing of flour grinding and has such for sale.  The water power hardware for the mill will be rebuilt; presently the grinding stone is powered by an electric motor.

A trip to Parke County to tour the covered bridges during the fall of 2009 inspired the painting of the mythical "Covered Bridges of Door County".

Enhancing the Bridgeton scene are Egg Harbor's historic Cupola House and Shipwreck (alias - Kewaunee House, Murphy Moore's, Blue Iris, just to name a few)...a bit of artistic liberties.
