Have you Supported the Fieldale Iron Bridge Yet?

There are only three more weeks left to purchase a plaque for the Fieldale Iron Bridge. Buying a plaque is the perfect way to honor or remember someone you care for or to promote your business. We are presently at 84% of our fundraising goal and only need $2,000 more to complete this project to preserve a local icon.

The metal plaques are approximately 3.5 by 5.5 inches in size and can contain upto three lines of text. They will be placed along beams on the trusses of the Historic Fieldale Iron Bridge once it is installed along the trail in Fieldale Park. The trusses will stand 12 feet high and 54 feet long. (Note: illustration not shown to scale)
Plaques are $100 each and the donation is tax-deductible. You can also purchase keepsake pieces of the 71 year old bridge along with a plaque for $250. A perfect holiday gift idea for the history buff on your list!

Thanks to a generous donation from Boxley Materials, the concrete footers to support the trusses will be poured during the last week of November. After a few days of curing the trusses will be securely mounted, painted and then the plaques will be attached.
