We are shifting gears to focus on fundraising.
STAY TUNED!!!!!!!

We are grateful for the support we have received in the quest to save the Sheepford Road Bridge, built in 1887 by the Phoenix Iron Company of Phoenixville, PA and rated 9 out of 10 in historic and technological significance by historicbridges.org, due to its Phoenix Columns. Gustav Eiffel saw plans for the never built Centennial Tower which used Phoenix Columns, and later credited Phoenixville Iron engineer Samuel Reeves for inspiration for the Eiffel Tower. 
Cumberland and York County Commissioners have allowed us until October, 2022 to seek a new owner and funding sources to preserve the bridge. 

We are extremely grateful for this RARE opportunity to SAVE OUR BRIDGE!
We know we will be successful! Stay tuned to see how you can help!
