Be sure to stop by the Croswell Swinging Bridge, a pedestrian suspension bridge, claimed to be the longest spanning suspension foot bridge in Michigan. Although Michigan does not have many bridges of this type to begin with. was built in 1905 and spans a whopping 139 feet. The original build cost was $300, in today's money that would be just under $9,000.00. When new, the bridge had just two cables which were supplied by Michigan Sugar Company and were used to support the planks. To provide a handhold, two more cables were added at a cost of $150. In August of 2006, all 128 planks were replaced at a cost of $1,300. The Bridge originally had a sign at the west end that admonished people to "Love Ye One Another." A sign at the east entrance (Maple Street) still reads, "Be Good To Your Mother-in-law."
If you're up for a road trip, you should put Croswell on your travel itinerary. A festival to celebrate the bridge takes place the second weekend of August each year and features cardboard boat races under the bridge.
