The Tilghman Island Bridge

Tilghman Island Bridge, The

Bridges play an important roll in the economic and social history of a community. Connecting Tilghman Island to the mainland since 1934, the Tilghman Island Bridge is a landmark listed in the National Register of Historic Places. When the time came for the bridge to be replaced, the community felt it deserved to be preserved. This is the story of the painstaking effort to dismantle the old bridge, replace it with a new bridge; then re-build the old bridge, which can now be seen at the Chesapeake Bay Marine Museum as a part of Maryland's maritime history. In this age, when old landmarks need to be updated, this is an important program that shows the history that is preserved with such an effort and offers a deeper appreciation of the newly constructed structure. Produced by AVIO Video Productions. 2008 IJSCA 30 min.
