We moved there in 1955. The property was owned by the Hancock brothers from Elcampo. We drove cattle across the bridge and also hauled them across in bobtail trucks owned by Emmett Cole Trucking. One time a cotton truck tried to go across it loaded with 3 bales of cotton and didn't make it across. It was still in use in 1970 when we left the ranch. I always heard that the Bass brothers from Victoria built the Swinging Bridge as we called it.
In the early 1950s, 51-52. That bridge was the only way in and out from our farm and house.
