Austin Peay State University - APSU - logoClarksville, TN – For nearly a century, the Port Royal covered bridge stood as more than just a literal bridge that allowed passage over the Cumberland River’s Red River stream. Until its destruction in 1998, it served as a bridge between generations of Montgomery County residents.

Over the decades, the Burr Truss bridge overlooked children at play, private weddings and countless family gatherings.

On display at Austin Peay State University’s Woodward Library is a table made from salvaged material from the old Port Royal covered bridge. The table was created by Larry Ellis and Kenny Bishop, two APSU alums, in 1971. Also on the table are sculptures of founder of the Dewey Decimal system, Melvil Dewey (left) and author Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (right). (Scott Summate, APSU)
