    Attractions in Byram and Jackson

    The Byram Swinging Bridge is one of the area’s top sights. The bridge, built in 1905, passes over the Pearl River. When the bridge was used by cars, they caused it to sway. Now it is designated a footbridge, and it has become a trend to put “locks of love” on the bridge cables.
