Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Bridgeton Covered Bridge / Bridgeton, Indiana February 20, 2009

When I visited Julie in November of last year we took a trip to snowy Bridgeton.

Bridgeton, Indiana is home to the oldest continuously operating mill west of the Allegheny Mountains.  The mill overlooks Indiana’s most famous covered bridge and waterfall.

The Bridgeton Covered Bridge was burned on April 28, 2005. The local community immediately came together and decided to rebuild the bridge. Fund raising began and on January 12, 2006 a bridge raising ceremony was held. On August 28, 2006 the spans of the bridge were lifted onto the abutments. The completed bridge was dedicated on October 1, 2006.

We toured around the rest of this charming town and saw some neat sights like the Country Store…

The Country Store was built sometime between 1884-1886.  Today the building functions as both a gift shop and a restaurant.  The Bridgeton Country Store is open for most festivals.

…and the 1878 Barn.

    I enjoyed the way you visually lead us through the tour; starting with the perspective of the lane/road leading to the bridge and moving to the bridge and then looking through the bridge. Then, the red country store with the snow falling around it…wonderful.

    I feel like I’ve had a nice little tour of a this picturesque place but without having to get cold. 😉 You did a fantastic job showing the detail of the inside of the bridge under contrasty lighting. Along with that one, my favorite is the third. Great processing in all these…
