Lower Shavertown Covered Bridge 32-13-07

My uncle Carl Campbell had this bridge moved from the Shavertown, NY area, he probably bought it from the local contractor clearing the land for the Pepaction Reservoir. It was stored for awhile in Rockland, NY. He then had it moved to its present location where he owned a considerable amount of the land along the main road.
