This is a great way to spend part of an afternoon.  It’s a short scenic drive to the Village of Beaver. Though sparsely populated – only about 100 residents – the town of Beaver has a wide appeal for locals and tourists alike. Its main draw? The Beaver Bridge, one of the few remaining suspension bridges in the state. Also, the historic charm of Beaver is postcard picturesque. Built in 1949 by the Pioneer Construction Company of Malvern, the one-lane, wooden and wire-cable suspension bridge spans the White River and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge is also referred to as the “Little Golden Gate.”
