Parke County, Indiana...

We recently spent a day in beautiful Parke County, two hours north of our home. We visited a number of attractions during our visit, and I will be blogging about these in the next few posts. Our primary reason for visiting Parke County was Turkey Run State Park - but we also spent time in Shades State Park and saw a few of the county's 31 covered bridges.

Our first stop in Parke County was Mansfield. This is the location of the Mansfield Roller Mill, a large water-powered mill, and the Mansfield Covered Bridge. Mansfield is also where the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival is held every October.
