Our June 2nd event commemorating the placement of the Sheepford Road Bridge on the Cumberland County Register of Historic Places far exceeded our expectations. Almost 100 attendees, including PA Treasurer Stacy Garrity, Congressman Scott Perry, Rep. Sheryl Delozier and more!
Below is the video by Videographer/Journalist Bill Keisling, which includes all speeches.

WE ARE BRIDGING THE GAP!
Please take a moment to read these articles.
We are shifting gears to focus on fundraising.
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. The Phoenix Columns on this bridge inspired Gustav Eiffel in the design of 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!
