J.B. Weisenfels has lived in rural Arkansas for three decades. She is a writer, a mom, and a graduate student. She is also an avid collector of tacky fish whatnots, slightly chipped teapots, and other old things. In her spare time she enjoys driving to the nearest creek to sit a while. If you were to visit her, she'd try to feed you cornbread.
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.
