Covered Bridges of Oregon

There are about 56 covered bridges left in Oregon, 50 of them still in use, where there once was a total of over 600. Since 1987 Oregon has passed legislation to help fund preservation of these bridges. Because of the availability of timber, covered bridges were constructed well into the 1950's.

Here is an interesting website devoted to covered bridges in Oregon - http://www.covered-bridges.org/index.htm
