Bucks County’s Covered Bridges

Come and hear R. Scott Bomboy, author of “Wooden Treasures: The Story of Bucks County’s Covered Bridges”. Mr. Bomboy will speak about his book on Tuesday, October 25 at 7:30 PM at the Newtown Theatre.

Today, only 12 such bridges remain, including the Schofield Ford Covered Bridge in Tyler State Park.

He has received national awards for his work in journalism and holds degrees in history from Penn State University and Arizona State University. He also produced the website as a joint project between the Bucks County Historical Society and Arizona State.

He currently works as editor-in-chief at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

This special evening is presented by the Newtown Theatre and the Newtown Historic Association. Tickets are $15 for the public and $10 for members of the Theatre and the Historic Association. Proceeds will benefit both non-profit organizations.
