  • This is a historical place. A rare look at a covered bridge like it was a hundred plus years ago. It is also the famous bridge that the book and movie "Bridges of Madison County" was based around.
  • Such a beautiful place I always wanted to visit this place, I would go in the summer time though because you can see all the wildlife and the river.
  • It is worth the trip to see each covered bridge. Pack a picnic or wait for a beautiful fall day and enjoy the drive.
  • Well maintained and clean. Part of the Bridges of Madison tour. Well marked and easy to find. I bet it gets busy during the summer, but we had it pretty much to ourselves during our September visit.
  • If you have seen the movie or read a little bit about the history of the bridges, truly a peaceful place to visit. We happened to catch it on a day a short film was being shot.
