This bridge was originally the bridge over the Codorus Creek on Glatfelters Station Road in York County and was moved sometime between May and August in 1988 to preserve the bridge and serve as a replacement for a failing simple-wooden bridge on the private driveway. It now also serves as an entry way from the parking lot of Glatfelter Station Parking lot for the York Heritage Railtrail.

This bridge was originally the bridge over the Codorus Creek on Glatfelters Station Rd. It did not come from Adams County. I know as I watched Kinsley Construction move it to a field in front of the stone house, near where it presently is. This was done sometime in the 80's I think.
