Coming up Nov. 2 in a brand new “Exploring Arkansas” episode, we’ll take you from one historic swinging bridge near Mountain View to another one in Beaver, check out some unusual fairy tale sculpture/architecture near Eureka Springs, visit the oldest church in Arkansas near Searcy, and look back to the day folks in Paragould thought they were experiencing the end of the world.
Built in 1914, the swinging bridge over Sylamore Creek, north of Mountain View, was part of the very first road that was constructed through the Ozark National Forest. Since that time, it has served as a favorite meeting place for family reunions, picnics, baptisms and, of course, swimming and fishing.
