"The Covered Bridges of Putnam County, Indiana" Bainbridge by Confucius

Bainbridge Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 3 photos

Would you like to take a drive through the Indiana countryside and see a couple of old fashioned covered bridges? Bainbridge is one of the best destinations out of Indianapolis for bridge enthusiasts.

Follow Highway 36 west until you reach Bainbridge and then turn right (north) on 200 E road and left (east) on 800 N. This route will bring you to Rolling Stone Bridge. (If you proceed east on 800 E after this bridge then you'll be driving on a gravel dirt road.)
After you return to Bainbridge then you'll turn right off of Highway 36 onto 300 E road and go through Baker's Camp Bridge on your way back to Indianapolis past Heritage Antique Mall.

More details about the two bridges are in my tips below.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nine old fashioned covered bridges waiting for you!
  • Cons:You've seen one, you've seen them all!
  • In a nutshell:Bainbridge is a very good choice for bridge enthusiasts
