The Bridgehunter’s Chronicles is a column produced by the author that focuses on historic bridges in the USA, Europe and elsewhere that tourists should visit before they are replaced or removed. Each bridge is profiled with the goal that people are aware of its existence and can take action regarding saving them. The Chronicles also provides a tour of some of the regions in the aforementioned areas, where there is a dense number of historic bridges that exist, with a goal of encouraging tourists to visit these areas and encourage others to add the place to their travel itineraries. And finally, the Chronicles provides readers with news stories of historic bridge preservation efforts, events involving historic bridge (preservation)- such as the Historic Bridge Conference,  bridge symposiums, etc., discussion about historic bridges, preservation and education about them, and literary work on historic bridges that were released to the public and the public should read about.

Most of the articles are written by the author (Jason D. Smith), but the Chronicles has also welcomed guest columns written by people from different areas of disciplines, whether they are historians, teachers, preservation experts, preservation groups, photographers, journalists, politicians or members of the pontist community- people who are experts in historic bridges, preservation laws and practices and the like.  We also take articles from people and bloggers who have visited bridges but are not affiliated with the aforementioned groups.
