      EVENT DETAILS
      The Kings of Covered Bridges

      As we celebrate African American Heritage Month, join us as Andrew Bramlett of the Kennesaw Historical Society shares the inspiring story of the renowned bridge-builder and architect, Horace King.

      Born into slavery, Horace King and his owner, a contractor, became prominent covered bridge builders in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. Freed before the Civil War, King and his sons formed a business that helped build a better Georgia. King designed and oversaw the construction of bridges, stores, houses, and college buildings until his death in 1885. King’s children continued to work at the company that became known as the King Brothers Bridge Company.
