Seventeen Ausable River bridges are listed on the National Register, the first such group listing in New York State. Crossing the River: Historic Bridges of the AuSable River is an excellent guide and map, for taking a self-guided tour. Several interesting bridges span the Ausable River in Keeseville. The oldest is a stone arch bridge built in 1843; the wrought-iron truss bridge dates to 1878. The most unusual bridge is a suspension bridge, known locally as the "swing bridge," which is actually a footbridge for pedestrians. The 240-foot span was built in the 1880s by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company of East Berlin, Connecticut.
