Renfrew Swinging Bridge

The W.H. Kearney family first built a suspension bridge across the Bonnechere in 1885. This modern reconstruction in wood and cable was completed in 1983 by the Town of Renfrew and updated again in 2015. This is one of three swinging bridges in Canada and provides an excellent view of the Bonnechere River and the power generation plant.
