Pheasant Run - "The Bridges of Madison County" Filming Location - Winterset, IA


In the film "The Bridges of Madison County," Francesca and Robert go to a fictitious bar called "The Blue Note." Above are two stills from the film. This was actually shot in a bar called Pheasant Run Pub & Grill, located at 103 South 1st Street in Winterset, Iowa. There is even a sign out front of the bar that says "Home of the Blue Note in the Movie" - referring to "The Bridges of Madison County," which you can see below in the photo I took in June of 2018.

Goodbye in the Rain Scene - "The Bridges of Madison County" Filming Location - Winterset, IA


This location was hard to find because the entire area is changed/remodeled. In the above pair of photos, the top image is a still from the film and below is the same location in June of 2018. I took the photo standing on West Green Street where it meets John Wayne Drive - facing east. The Winterset General Store no longer exists and has been replaced by a Subway restaurant. The pair of photos below has the top image from the film with the truck pulling away from the General Store. The bottom image was taken on West Green Street facing east.
