Who We Are

Our Story

Our Story begins as a grassroots organization following a successful heritage display during Pasadena’s Come Home Year 2012.  Formed as an advisory committee to Town Council in 2014, the committee quickly outgrew its role.  We launched our website and Facebook page in 2015.

Why a Bridge for our logo?

Church Street Bridge

What it Represents

The bridge on Church Street is a significant piece of infrastructure for the Town of Pasadena. We use it as our logo as it represents bridging the former communities’ heritage.
Bow Arch Bridge

Style of Bridge

Built in 1936 by J.J. Gale. This style of bridge, known as a Bow Arch or Tied Bow bridge, was quite popular in the 1930s. Only a handful remain standing in the province today. All but one are closed to traffic.

The bridge was part of the Highroad (original main street through the community). The highway was relocated to present day Main Street in 1955. On February 1, 2016, the Town of Pasadena Council designated this bridge as a Municipal Heritage Place.
