The Oldest Covered Bridge In Oregon Has Been Around Since 1914
Oregon is home to more than 50 covered bridges. Each one is unique, and many are downright photo-worthy. We recently made a list of 11 of our favorite beautiful covered bridges, but we have so many more that we love! The oldest covered bridge in the Beaver State was built in 1914, and thanks to some loving attention from members in the community of Otis, it’s still around for you to visit.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
