Brunswick Hotel Swinging Bridge

Swinging Bridge

This pedestrian suspension bridge is over 330 feet long and very narrow. Though the bridge has been repaired a few times over the years, and many parts have been replaced, the cables are original to the 19th-century structure. The bridge was built by John A Roebling’s Sons Company, the same firm that constructed the Brooklyn Bridge. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
