Sandor Gulyas will address the Big Walnut Area Historical Society at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday February 11th in the Myers Inn Meeting Room.  He will discuss covered bridges in Delaware County and the difficulties in locating them.  Chambers Road Covered Bridge in Porter Township is the last covered bridge in Delaware County.

Gulyas has been a resident of Kingston Township for over half his life. He graduated from Buckeye Valley High School in 1993,  has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography from Ohio State University and Masters of Arts degree in Geography from Louisiana State University.

From 1999-2007, Gulyas was part owner and co-creative director of the website, which featured photography of various roadside scenery from Ohio and cartographic history.

Mr. Gulyas has been an assistant librarian at the Delaware County Historical Society for over three years, specializing in cartographic and transportation history as well as the digital aspects of photography.

His interest in covered bridges is just part of his life interest in maps, travel, highways, and most things geographical.

For this talk, Sandor Gulyas will be sharing the history and locations of covered bridges throughout Delaware County as well as discussing the difficulties he has experienced in identifying the various covered bridges that have stood in Delaware County at various times in our history by sharing various photos from the Delaware County Historical Society’s collection.
