History buffs' must see.
Jul 2020
Beautifully maintained, it's easily accessible from I-5. History abounds in the area, but very few buildings are left. The 1846 grave that gave the name is a few feet north of the bridge. There is a good sized parking area next to the interpretive sign.

The museum is closed because of COVID, but travelers can take photos from outside the fence.

No restrooms or picnic tables are available.

It's an important stop for history enthusiasts.

Loved this bridge, we wished that some of the historical buildings had been around to see. Quick on-off from the freeway.

Little left to see

This spot has an interesting place in southern Oregon history, but there is little left to see. The museum was closed on Monday.

Beautiful Bridge, not so good area
Jul 2017 • Family
Stopped by to see the bridge today and LOVED it. However, there was a TON of graffiti underneath it and quite a bit of trash. I was travelling with my 13 yr old son, and didn't quite feel safe as we were the only ones there. If the surrounding area was cleaned up a bit, I would give it another "circle" Lovely piece of history.

You gotta see the pioneer grave nearby and the bridge is regal, old survivor like a covered bridge should be.

Grave Creek - Josephine County OR only Covered Bridge - But no picnic area or toilet
Feb 2017 • Solo
Conveniently located just off of the Interstate 5 corridor, this is the last remaining covered bridge in Josephine County, Oregon this is an easy drive-by spot to visit. The bridge is lovely, and the historic info display is very good. But there is just a pull out on the side of the road by the bridge, no picnic area and no toilet, so there is a lot of litter. I would have thought the county would make more of this landmark, and make it more attractive for visitors, not to mention keep it cleaner.

A nice stop.

Stop at the Museum to learn the sad sad story of the young girl who,s grave is just behind the bridge. The creek is named for her grave. the bridge is unique in that the openings on the side are in the shape of coffins...Watch out for the speed bump, and bring cash to the Museum

Cool covered bridge

Worth a look see, one of the few west coast covered bridges. Just off I-5. The bridge is part of Applegate Trail.

This is actually part of the story from the Applegate center.
Jun 2016 • Couples
This bridge covers Grave creek, just a few yards from the Applegate interpretive Center. The complete story is told in that center and well worth a visit.
