Building Bridges: Pioneers of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad's Bridge Department

The civil engineers of the B&O in the 19th century produced structures to support trains of unprecedented weights and speeds. Paul Bridge reveals how they became superheroes in the transition from products steeped in classical Roman intuitive engineering to scientifically designed iron and steel structures of unbelievable strength and eye-opening beauty. 

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Grace Hall, Grace Lutheran Church, 21 Carroll Street, Westminster. Member $3, Non Member $7
