For the third year, Claude Price will open his property to show off his prized possession, the covered bridge that took him six years to build.
Price offers the tours to raise money for the children at St. Mary's Home. Price has spent 47 years of his life studying covered bridges.
Once again, Price has scheduled the Covered Bridge Tour to coincide with the Sausage Festival in Elberta set for Saturday, March 30, 2013, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Price asks that people wanting to visit the bridge donate $10.00 per car.
The event will feature live music by Nashville musician Jessie Stokes, nature trail walks, trackless train rides, antique tractor show, blacksmith exhibitions, and vendors.
Price planned the bridge tour on the same day as The Elberta German Sausage Festival so that families could combine the two events for a fun-filled day.
For those wishing to tour the bridge, Price suggests visitors take Highway 98 in Baldwin County to Old Foley Road to Highway 83/Main Street to Selena Lane and then follow the one lane road to the covered bridge.
Founded in 1838, St. Mary's Home serves as the oldest residential treatment facility for abused, abandoned and neglected children in Alabama.
