“Swinging Bridge”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This bridge was rebuilt some time ago after a flood, so it is relatively new. The whole town is wonderful with a classic Main Street. We used to live there and miss it.

“Great for kids”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Take an extra 5 minutes to stretch your legs during a long drive here! It is quick, easy and free! Fun for kids because it looks scarier than it is. Even my most hesitant child was excitedly looking over the rail within minutes! Sturdy walkway and has a little bit of sway (not bad).

“Town's Must Do”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

When in Buchanan, one must walk the swinging bridge. Excellent view of the river, especially when kayaks/canoes in the river. Easy to park near the river and walk up to the bridge. Ramp from the vehicular bridge to the swinging bridge is steep, but otherwise, the bridge is largely accessible. Large groups must separate to cross.
