Shown here is the Cotter Bridge in Baxter County, also known as the R. M. Ruthven Memorial Bridge, which was completed in 1930. Designed by Marsh Engineering Company, it is formally known as a Marsh Rainbow Arch Bridge and was constructed using a design patented by James Marsh in 1912. Taking the Bateman Construction Company approximately a year to complete, the structure was dedicated in November 1930. A tourist attraction, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. It has recently undergone complete restoration.
