The City of Cottage Grove did an outstanding job of having this bridge restored. The interpretive center is infomative and well done. If you have the chance to see it at night too - it is worth taking the time.

Beautiful, and with bits of history. Lovely setting and great information. Will return-we want to get photos of ALL covered bridges in Oregon, hopefully in all 4 seasons

I came to photograph the bridges in the area and came upon this historical and preserved bridge. As you enter from the street there is information on the inside and as you exit the bridge on the other side is a wonderful park to enjoy, including a sculpture to climb for photos. Worth your time for a visit!

This bridge has been reconstructed in the last couple of years.

.
It was originally a railroad bridge that served a huge lumber mill and yard. The mill burned to the ground in 1932.
This is the only remaining covered railroad bridge west of the Mississippi.

Recently restored, the Chambers Railroad Bridge has become a favorite Kodak spot. There is an interesting screeching sound, set up to deter birds from nesting in the rafters. Apparently adults cannot detect the high pitch but teenagers can and they find it somewhat annoying.

We did not realize that Cottage Grove is actually a popular town. They had a few movies filmed there. This bridge was really cute and we got some pretty cute pictures.

One of the many historic covered bridges in the area. This one is the largest since it was built for a logging railway, and unique in that it also has a covered walkway.

it was a nice find for our 1st 'covered bridge' to encounter and able to walk/bike thru, and if you went thru - there's a nice wrought iron display of a 'train engine' perspective! the self-guided displays inside the bridge told of the history of that particular bridge and the stream below was running clean .

just wished we had a home along the waterway.

Not far off the trail head for the Row River trail. One of several covered bridges on or near the trail.

Really nice that you can walk across the bridge. If you are coming from the street side be sure to cross the bridge and check out the large history signs. They are very colorful, informative and well done.
