Join us on a journey through some of Oregon's Covered Bridges with this 70 minute DVD
At one time Oregon had more than 400 covered bridges. Today just over 50 remain.
They are now protected and are a popular attraction drawing photographers and tourists alike.
In the pioneer days the material for construction was close at hand and plentiful. It was common knowledge
that a wooden bridge which was protected from the elements would last considerably longer than those left in the open,
hence the covered bridges that we see today.
Today, Oregon's covered bridges are cared for and restored by a variety of individuals, local and state organizations and government agencies.
