Preservation Efforts


There are a number of places around the country where an effort is being made to save old King bridges. In this section of our Museum, we will be commenting on these efforts periodically in order to help those involved examine and hopefully benefit from what others are (or are not) doing. The Allan King Sloan Family Fund has been helping provide some funding for these efforts and is available for assistance for worthy causes of this kind. If you know of any restoration or preservation projects of this kind, please tell us about them by contacting
