Oregon State has an amazing number of covered bridges, 56 in all. A number that used to be around 450. This fall while driving through the area I made attempts to see several of them and have to say that Cottage Grove had some of the best to see as well as a great town to stop in. The main street area still holds several buildings from the 20th century, over a 100 years old. Similar to Toppenish, WA several of the local buildings have various paintings on the side of them which tells their own stories. Restaurants are several, lodging is available and a visit to the Chamber is worth the stop. If you plan to go anywhere else for more bridges do your research. As high marks go to Cottage Grove several of the other areas in the state are not marked so well and finding them a bit of a struggle at times. www.cgchamber.com
