Highway 10 and those McCullough Bridges

February 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for a presentation by Joyce Sherman on Highway 101 and the famous McCullough Bridges on Saturday, February 8th from 2-3 pm. Learn how the Oregon Coast Highway was built and how fortunate we are to have McCullough’s bridges at almost every bay and river crossing. You’ll see a photo of the first bridge across Rocky Creek as well as McCullough’s Ben Jones Bridge across the creek, and you’ll find out how Lincoln County was created. Learn how Ben Jones, Oswald West, Conde McCullough, and Sam Reed were important figures in the building of Hwy 101.

Joyce Sherman first photographed the Yaquina Bay Bridge when she was 12, using her father’s Speed Graphic 4×5 “press” camera. They both entered photos in the State Fair later that summer; Joyce’s photo of the bridge won second place. In 1962, she and her parents pooled their money to buy a cabin and a couple of acres of Logan Creek in Roads End. After 52 years of splitting her time between Roads End and Portland she and her husband Marty became full-time Roads Enders in 2014. Joyce is an avid fisherman and owns River Graphics, which provides design and marketing for sport fishing companies.
