Bridgeton is a historic, small town located in Parke County in west-central Indiana. Parke County is called "The Covered Bridge Capital of the World," with a total of 31 of the bridges nestled along the county's back roads. The town of Bridgeton is home to one of the picturesque bridges. The first Bridgeton covered bridge was a 245-foot, double span Burr Arch bridge built in 1868. The bridge was closed to traffic in 1968 and burned by an arsonist in 2005. Local citizens rebuilt a historically accurate reconstruction of the bridge, which was completed in October, 2006. Bridgeton is also home to the oldest continuously operating mill west of the Allegheny Mountains, and the first two blocks of town are a registered National Historic District. The mill overlooks the covered bridge and a lovely waterfall. The town also features several special events during the year, including the Covered Bridge Festival in October. This event draws thousands for the crafts, antiques, collectibles and lots of good food. It's also a great time to visit the area for the changing of the autumn leaves. Other festivals in Bridgeton include Milling Days, which takes place the weekend after Labor Day and Country Christmas, the last weekend in November and first weekend in December.

Surrounding areas: Rockville, Indiana (8.6 mi), Terre Haute, Indiana (17.6 mi)
