Ripley County IN - Busching Covered Bridge
999 E County Road 25 S
Versailles, IN 47042

After Westport and Holton Bridge, finding Busching is a snap.  From Holton straight east on US50 for 7.5 miles and you are in Versailles.  The state park is on the east side of town and the bridge is on the west side of the park.  The first entrance coming from the Versailles is the one to take.  We went north and less than a mile away sits the bridge.  It is a Howe Truss bridge built in 1885 and spans 176' across Laughery Creek.  This is still a working bridge and recently renovated and also very similar to Holton Bridge.
