Albany Woodworks Builds Bridges From Antique Lumber, 1988


Built by Albany Woodworks from our Antique Heart Cypress for its natural weather resistance and durability, the first Moon Bridge was installed in 1988 at the Dallas/Fort Worth Botanical Gardens and the second was installed at the Springfield, Missouri Botanical Gardens.

These are recent pictures after the bridges have been in service for over 25 years.  From our 1988 ad: "The Moon Bridge is a centuries-old design for a footbridge which will promote a balance of focal interest and serenity among the plant and water elements of your garden area."
