Mother-in-Law Bridge in Croswell

The Mother-in-law bridge over the Black River in Croswell is a hoot. Also known as the Swinging Bridge, this suspension structure was built over 100 years ago by the Michigan Sugar Company to give their employees a quick foot access to reach their jobs at the sawmill. At the time, the cost for this 139 foot bridge was $300. Like the sign says, capacity is limited to 50 people at a time.  It is so annoying when people jump up and down! You have to put this on your bucket list because it is the longest suspension footbridge in our state.
