This Terrifying Swinging Bridge In Wisconsin Will Make Your Stomach Drop

A swinging bridge is a suspension cable bridge. There aren’t very many, but you can find one in Marathon, Wisconsin. This particular one is over the Rib River. There is not much out there on the internet about this bridge – really, try finding an address or historical information. Nevertheless, it has been around for decades. What we do know about the bridge is that it is by what used to be the Marathon City Brewery. That became defunct in 1966. This area does not get a ton of traffic – some people come out to a swimming area and you can walk through the woods. But this bridge is all but forgotten. The fact that it is tucked away makes it even more intriguing (and a little scary!).

Have you seen this bridge before? Do you know any more of the history?
