Built in 1854, the Sachs Covered Bridge, also known as Sauck's Bridge, spans over the 100 feet long Marsh Creek. Locals report haunting experiences can be found here like a strange fog that would gather quickly and the appearance of ghostly figure in battle would appear. There has also been images of orbs in photos taken of the bridge.

The bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1890. During the American Civil War, both the Union and Confederate Armies utilized the bridge during the Battle of Gettysburg and its aftermath.

  • Great haunted location!

    I've been here numerous times while visiting Gettysburg. The area out here is my most favorite ghost hunting location. I've had numerous experiences while at Sachs bridge. One time we were there on the other side of the bridge and some other people came. We decided to prank them and scare them. We proceeded to split into 2 groups and hide behind the stone walls on either side of the bridge while we waited for them to come across. As they came across we moved around the wall, and got ready. And what happens? A dark shadow figure comes walking out from the bridge right past us. Needless to say the ghost got us all and we all ran for our cars, the strangers included, lol.

  • Amazing Experience of our lives!!

    My husband & I visit sachs bridge every august..last august at night we & a few other fearless people were out taking pics around 12:30am..we struck up conversations w them & to all of our amazement we heard what sounded like a "battle cry" off in the distance across from the bridge in the woods..we were shocked but then a few minutes later we all heard it again this time followed by the sound of drums..we took pics & did catch a few orbs that cant be explained by weather or camera lenses, or functions thereof. It was an amazing experience and we will never forget it!!
