Swinging Bridge over Roaring River at Eagle Rock, MO. Circa 1940s. Submitted by: Linda Stephens McCormick


Munsey Swinging Bridge - No Date

The Munsey School house was located in front of what is now the Munsey Cemetery near Eagle Rock, MO. The school house stood on what is now the parking lot. The land was donated by the Munsey family for a school and cemetery. There once was a field across the road where the students played ball but it has washed away.

At the end of the field was a swinging bridge that the children used when Roaring River flooded. The swinging bridge is all gone now - except for a support that still remains, which now stands in the middle of Roaring River.
