New Brochure Brings Appreciation To Washington County's Historic Stone Arch Bridges

New Brochure Brings Appreciation To Washington County's Historic Stone Arch Bridges

The CVB has produced a new brochure called Bridges of Washington County Maryland. It showcases 21 historic stone arch structures that span the Conococheague Creek and the Antietam Creek and its tributaries. The concept for the brochure came from Katherine Campbell Francomano of DoubleDog Productions. The design layout was done by Icon Graphics. The brochure has current photographs of each bridge done by Francomano, an accurate background of each bridge as well as a few historical photographs, and two maps which show the location of each bridge. Some have notations that the bridge is on private land and may not be visited without permission from the owner; the bridges that have county picnic areas are also indicated.
The new brochure was reviewed for accuracy by the Washington County Historical Society, local historian Patricia Schooley, Washington County Special Projects Director Gary Rohrer, historians from the Western Maryland Room at the Washington County Free Library including John Frey, CVB Historian Roger Keller, Washington County Historical Society Executive Director, Jim Neville and others. The CVB had 15,000 copies of the brochure done in the first printing. They are available at the downtown Hagerstown Visitor Welcome Center, Prime Outlets, and the Valley Mall, as well as from area hotels and CVB members.
