Description 

Originally located across the Lemon Fair River in Shoreham, VT (Adjacent to the Shoreham covered railroad bridge), this bridge was dismantled and put into storage in 1989 and was replaced soon after with a modern pony truss.

Bridge name is derived from the local granite quarry, to which the bridge is adjacent.
