Restored bridge in New London, Minn., to be featured on gardening program


NEW LONDON — Tucked away on their farm in rural New London, right down the hill from their quaint, log cabin home, Ken and Kay Johnson possess their own little slice of heaven: a covered bridge that sits atop the Middle Fork Crow River.

They acquired the bridge from the town six years ago, after it was deemed a danger because cars kept running into it. The road is now closed to traffic.
