Description 

A good example of the once common queenpost, Morgan Bridge is most remarkable in that it is one of the few that still functions as a timber load-bearing truss bridge. One of about sixteen queenposts remaining in Vermont, it was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. -- Historic American Engineering Record (HAER VT-33). World Guide # VT-08-07
