Event Details

Join Calvin Sneed as he takes you on a journey hundreds of miles long and centuries in the making. It’s a journey to visit historic steel truss and concrete arch bridges in our lives, like taking trips that our parents, grandparents, and ancestors routinely made.

Everybody has a steel truss bridge somewhere in our lives. It might have been the bridge over the creek or river to Grandma’s house. It might have been the bridge we crossed over the creek to and from school or with Mama to the Piggly Wiggly every Saturday morning. That steel truss bridge became so familiar to us that part of our hearts was lost with it when it was torn down and replaced.

Calvin Sneed is on a mission to try and save them through photography and spends much of his free time traveling and documenting these landmarks that we take for granted.
