Description 

In 1913, a swinging bridge of similar design was built across the Sheboygan River to give citizens of Sheboygan Falls access to River Park. It replaced a primitive design swinging bridge. The current bridge pays homage to the earlier bridge, resembling the old bridge but of a more modern design with modern safety features.
