Description 

The bridge is the smallest authentically built covered bridge in the country. The bridge was on display at the 1999 Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. as part of the N.H. program, "Celebrating New Hampshire Stories." The bridge will be named after the late Stoney Morrell, owner of Story Land, who purchased it in 2002 for a display at Heritage NH (an interactive museum dedicated to the history of the Granite State) in Glen.

The bridge, which will be named the Stoney Morrell Memorial Covered Bridge, will be officially put into place by a team of four Oxen. The final bridge placement will be on Thursday the 17th of September.
