John Moseley's bridge stands over the Stony Brook in a pine grove. It is one of the four kingpost bridges left in the state, and one of the two that employ a timber kingpost.

The Covered Spans of Yesteryear website notes that the bridge was renovated in 1971 when "five steel I-beam stringers were added, among other repairs. In 1978 the bridge had its siding repaired and received a new coat of barn red paint. Its original granite abutments were faced with concrete in 1990."

Covered Spans of Yesteryear also notes that this bridge holds the distinction of being "the youngest historic Kingpost covered bridge on a public highway in Vermont.".
