Canadian---The Canadian River Walking Bridge draws nature enthusiasts from all over the world.

Beam by beam, nail by nail, the old bridge was preserved about ten years ago.

"It really points to the pride we have and it's one more aspect to the quality of life and we believe if its a good place to live, its also a good place to visit." said Chamber of Commerce director, Tamera Julian.

Built in 1915,  the wagon bridge served as the only way for travelers to get over the Canadian River for quite some time.  It was later decommissioned during the 1950's.
