Sandy Hook Bridge

Maury County commissioners voted to demolish this historic bridge in the Sandy Hook community of Maury County in February, but the Army Corps of Engineers will hear a case for its inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.

A group of Maury County residents are continuing their fight to save an historic bridge in the Sandy Hook community, the last remaining bridge of its type in Tennessee.

Sandy Hook resident Philip Crews has spent the last several months researching and campaigning for saving the bridge from demolition, though the Maury County Commission voted in February to go forward with demolition.
