Bridges, S. Powell


Shelbridge, the residence of the president of East Tennessee State University, is located on East Eleventh Avenue in Johnson City, Tennessee. Constructed about 1920 by Roswell H. Spears, a wholesale lumber dealer in Johnson City, the house was sold to Henry P. Bridges and his wife, Shelby Thomas Bridges, in 1928. The Bridges named the estate Shelbridge. Following the death of Henry P. Bridges' widow, Shelby Thomas White, Shelbridge was sold to the state of Tennessee in 1973.

Woodmont Rod and Gun Club, Hancock, Maryland, was organized in 1870 by Rear Admiral Robley D. Evans and reorganized in 1908 by Henry P. Bridges, Sr.
