The Terrifying Swinging Bridge In Oklahoma That Will Make Your Stomach Drop

There are not many options when it comes to swinging bridges in Oklahoma, but there’s one that has been making Oklahoman’s stomachs drop for almost a century. Located in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, the Pawhuska Swinging Bridge was built in 1926 and was the only way to get into town during high waters. The bridge crosses over Bird Creek with its crickety, old wood planks and chain link sides. But don’t worry, if you’re afraid of heights, just don’t look down!
