  1. Last time i went there they had the bridge blocked off. And was also told that they can legally shoot you while tresspassing on there property.

  2. It’s been said for years that if you park on the bridge after midnight you will hear a baby cry…

  3. I crossed that bridge many times as a child on my bicycle
    My grandparents lived on Enterprise Road in Ingomar and for many years our family reunions we are held at the Twin Valley Rod & Gun Club.
    I have a brother that lives in Gratis right now, and a sister that lives in Eaton where I grew up till we move to Dayton !
    A few years back we made a journey to try to see all of the remaining covered bridges in Southwestern Ohio !
    My favorite covered bridge is now at a park along Seven Mile Creek in Eaton 🙂

  4. Note!
    Do not go there. The road is closed… it’s not haunted just an old crazy any that has cameras everywhere and calls the police. Then Preble county or I have to come and probably give you a ticket. For driving on a closed road or trespassing charges if you go on her property.

    • A road, closed or not, is not a private property. I don’t own the road I live on and cannot give you a ticket or otherwise. No one can shoot you if on public property with the exception of the police if you are doing something dangerous to others. It doesn’t work anyway, you will hear nothing, I tried it almost twenty years ago.

  5. I heard that a lady an her baby was driving on the bridge the child has his head out the window and his head got tore off
