  • I have seen a lot of other conflicting information about this bridge. Some references have it over North Sylamore Creek and most have it "north of Mountain View". The bridge is located over South Sylamore Creek about one-half mile due west of Allison, Arkansas on what is now Stone County route 283 and appropriately named Swinging Bridge Road. Structurae dates the bridge much earlier (completed 1914). Federal Highway Administration data shows the bridge constructed in 1943 and reconstructed 1985.
