Historic Covered Bridge Support

Wolfe House Movers was contracted to support the 108-foot long Herr’s Mill Bridge in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The bridge needed to be supported so it could be safely dismantled and moved to a new location. Our team used a crane to set the steel framework out over the river and then blocked up off of that to support the bridge. You can see more pictures of the work at PennLive.

Herr’s Mill Bridge is located in Paradise and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge will be disassembled and moved, piece by piece, to Abel’s Stone Gable Estate in Elizabethtown, which is also home to the Star Barn Village.
