CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A West Virginia filmmaker will talk about the state's covered bridges in a program at the state Culture Center Thursday.
Terry Lively will present "Covered Bridges of West Virginia" in the Archives and History Library at 6 p.m.. The program is free and open to the public.
Lively will discuss West Virginia's 17 remaining covered bridges and show a 20-minute video with highlights from her new documentary film, "West Virginia Covered Bridges."
"Covered bridges take us back to a simpler time." Lively said. "I wanted to take this opportunity to tell the stories of these transportation treasures,"
Among those bridges are the state's oldest surviving covered bridge in Philippi, built in 1852, and the bridge at Barrackville that was built one year later.
Lively is the owner/president of Vandalia Productions. She holds a master's degree in media studies from West Virginia State University and has been an adjunct faculty member since 2006.
Terry also produced "Crossings: Bridge Building in West Virginia," a documentary film released in 2006 and a book published in 2009.
Attendees are encouraged to register for the program, but advance registration is not required. To register, contact Robert Taylor at 304-558-0230 or Bobby.L.Tay...@wv.gov.
