Lecture Series: History of the Poughkeepsie-Highland Bridge
August 18, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Come join us at the Ulster Welcome Center for a fun and informative afternoon with Tom Ilich as he presents a lecture on the history of the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge, now known as the Walkway Over the Hudson. The lecture will cover the courage needed to overcome the challenges of creating the Bridge in the 1800s, the process to get the final design, and the criticism and upgrades surrounding the entire project. As part of the lecture, he will also be presenting his documentary “Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge – Past, Present & Future”.
This event is free to attend for Walkway members. Non-members are asked to consider a $5 suggested donation. Consider becoming a member at join.walkway.org.
