Scavenger Hunt to Find All of Oregon's Covered Bridges?


Parvin Covered Bridge was named for pioneer settlers, Salina and James Parvin. The couple's 1880s homestead was located very near the original bridge which was replaced after failing an inspection in 1917. The new single lane bridge, often referred to as Lost Creek Covered Bridge, was open to vehicle traffic between 1921 and the 1970s when the bridge became pedestrian only due to changes in traffic flow. After people regained an interest in covered bridges, it was repaired and reopened to car traffic once again in 1986.

Did you know that Oregon has more covered bridges than any other state in the western United States?

We spent a day searching for covered bridges near Portland a number of years ago. During our trek from Portland to Crater Lake National Park last summer, we were looking for something to see along our return drive. That's when we learned that Oregon has over 50 covered bridges. The good news was that several of them were near our route. Since we had fun finding the others on our original covered bridge hunt, we devoted part of our day finding more - like Parvin Covered Bridge in the photo.

Where have you found covered bridges on your travels?
