You can't visit Gettysburg without stopping at Sach's Bridge! Research the history of it before you visit, and plan to see it before dark!

Scary at night but don't let that deter you . There is a sign that states under surveillance camera .A monument to another time. Beautiful river beneath. Especially lovely on fall

A very popular bridge to visit. There were two groups taking their Christmas card photos and then lots of people enjoying a mild November afternoon.

This place has easy access and is easy to find. Great photo ops! You can find it very easy in Google Maps on Waterworks Road which is about 10 minutes outside the main street in Gettysburg.
