Share Your Fairview Bridge Story
April 12, 2023 | View PDF
The Fairview Chamber of Commerce and Friends of the Fairview Bridge are compiling a booklet of historical and personal stories and photos to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the historic Fairview Bridge. Comprised of 110 stories, the booklet will provide a look into the significance of the bridge to the residents of this area and beyond. Photos are also encouraged.
Did you, or someone you know, ride the famous Galloping Goose? Are you one of many who walked the tracks while the trains were still operating? Do you know of someone who worked on the bridge or for the railroad? Are you someone who enjoys the quiet beauty of an afternoon in Sundheim Park with the bridge as your background? Whatever your connection to the bridge, the Chamber wants your story.
The booklet is the brain child of Chamber member Jeremy Dean Krieger who explained, “We want to keep history alive. We want to publish these stories while we still can.”
Please email your story to [email protected] or mail it to the Fairview Chamber, Box 374, Fairview, MT, 59221. Chamber members will choose from the entries submitted. If you include a photo, please indicate if you would like it returned to you. Tentative publication date is this summer.
