Cedar Chapel Covered Bridge

While technically not motorized traffic all year round, the bridge is used in the Legend of Spooky Hallow Halloween Tractor Pulled Hay Wagon. But to be honest, the daughter and I did it one Halloween, and most of the true spooky stuff was in the living history areas leading up to the sighting of the Headless Horseman. My Daughter was the first to notice him, and no one was scared of him LOL.
