Prior to concrete and steel, bridges were a blend of engineering and artistry in wood and stone and generally covered with a roof and sidewalls.

Central Pennsylvania is, providentially, endowed with a number of first-rate colleges and universities: Franklin & Marshall, Gettysburg, Elizabethtown, Dickinson – to name just a few.

Reservoir Park is the largest municipal park in Harrisburg, taking up a portion of the Allison Hill neighborhood, and is home to a variety of attractions that include the National Civil War Museum. A part of the Capital Area Greenbelt, a 20-mile green-way that surrounds portions of the city, it is the site of outdoor festivals and performances, a number of which are performed in the band shell, another of the park’s most exemplary structures.
