In May 2017, McMullan & Associations, Inc. received a formal “Certificate of Appreciation” from the National Park Service (NPS) in recognition of our “exceptional support for the restoration of the historic Burnside Bridge, preserving this national treasure for present day and future generations.” The certificate was signed by NPS Superintendent Susan Trail.

McMullan worked with the National Park Service to faithfully restore one of the most well-known Civil War bridges to its original condition, which had suffered from stone fallout and water damage. The beautifully proportioned 192-foot bridge runs over the Antietam Creek in Sharpsburg, MD, and is part of the Antietam National Battlefield Park. In September 1862, this park was the battleground where nearly five thousand Americans lost their lives.
