Day 85 - Gallon House Covered Bridge

In her hey day, Oregon had over 400 covered bridges. Now only 51 remain standing, mostly in the western part of the state.

This is the Gallon House covered bridge. It was a "pigeon drop" for bootleggers between Silverton, OR a dry town and Mt. Angel, OR.

The Gallon House Bridge spans 84' over the Abiqua Creek.
