A Gallery of Oregon Covered Bridges is so big, it is broken into 3 pages.
Here are 53 covered bridges...49 of which are historic.
Because of their unique design elements, we chose to
represent these marvels as sketches...thanks to
www.Akvis.com a photo to sketch conversion software. Although all alike, they are NOTHING alike.
Historically, the covered bridge was needed to protect the wooden timbers that spanned the river. A covered bridge could weather the elements 80 or more years while an uncovered one, only 10. It is no surprise that rainy Oregon had more than 300 bridges at one time.
There were 14000 bridges across the United States 150
years ago...less than 900 remain today. Visit a
covered bridge and you'll find a photographer from
somewhere in the world who has come to see the melding
of form and function. Good information about
Oregon bridges can be found at
www.covered-bridges.org Be sure and jot down
the latitude/longitude of our covered bridge picture.
Just set your GPS and off you go!
