I was honored to be a part of the rebuild of this structure. My crew and myself worked very carefully and with the upmost attn. to detail to complete this structure. All of the timbers were provided by Hull Oaks mill in Monroe, OR. It was part of the contract to have Hull Oaks cut and provide timbers it being one of the last steam powered mills left that could cut such massive timbers along with the historic value of the project. I had the opportunity to visit the mill before the project was underway. That was an experience in itself. My crew was top of the line to say the least. We put a lot of pride in this project to assure it came out perfect. We also had to reuse all steel hardware that was obviously made by hand back in the day. We often spoke about what kind of men first built this bridge and was in awe! Well that's about all I have on this subject for now! If you have a chance to visit this historic place, please keep in mind that crafts such as these needed to build our and keep our history together are fading fast. It takes grit and knowledge to complete this work going! It takes good teachers and young people to listen and learn such a needed craft! Thanks for reading and have a great future! Sincerely; Butch Cutshaw ll.
PS. Up above it asked " when did you visit? " Had to select from dates which was not there! We built this bridge in 2011 if my memory serves me well!

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.

There are several such covered bridges in Cottage Grove, however this one seems to be best preserved.
Not much to see, it's a 3 min photo stop. I wouldn't go out of my way to see, but CG is a small town so it was close.

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.

I definitely give this bridge an excellent rating as it is very well kept, has great signage, and sits in a super nice little park. Super peaceful in the morning light. The railroad motif makes this one special...walking through is spectacular, and the floor has the appearance of railroad tracks. Parking is a little tough with this one. I went over the river and parked in a dead end street that enters the park.
