STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV)-- The Sears Hill bridge has been covered from the graffiti tags, but neighbors can all agree they want to see some respect when it comes to the preservation of this landmark.
Monica Wilson said she sees names and symbols pop up on the bridge's railings. But, the marks have been painted over for now.
Wilson and others aren't happy about the graffiti. They said they're disappointed that some don't show respect to what neighbors worked so hard to recover.
"the bridge is such an integral part of our community pride. We really love it, we're proud of it, it came back. The community came together, banded together to pay for the restoration, so it's very disappointing when we see tagging and graffiti on it," said Monica Wilson, a Staunton neighbor.
The city celebrates the bridge and the community's efforts to restore it, especially every April on "bridge day."
