One Of The Most Haunted Bridges In Arkansas, Cotter Bridge, Has Been Around Since 1930

There’s nothing like a good, old-fashioned boomtown to bring to mind stories of ghasts and specters. The town of Cotter may not be the largest town in North Arkansas anymore, but it is home to some amazing trout fishing, natural beauty to take your breath away, and the largest Marsh Rainbow Arch Bridge still in existence. The R. M. Ruthven Rainbow Arch Bridge, which was built in 1930 and renovated in 2004, is wonderful architectural marvel, but some tales indicate it may be hiding some sinister happenings under its lovely trusses.
