Buchanan Crosses the Mighty JamesSince 1851, portions of the Buchanan Swinging Bridge have played a critical role in the Town of Buchanan's history while providing a scenic crossing of the James River. The Buchanan Swinging Bridge you see now is 366 feet long, 57.5 feet tall at the peak, and the only one of its type to cross the James River. Portions of the bridge have witnessed Hunter's Civil War raid, the rerouting of U.S. Route 11, and numerous floods.
