Horse Creek Covered Bridge

N Main St, Myrtle Creek, Oregon 97457 USA

“Relocated but still standing!”

The Horse Creek Bridge was a covered bridge near the unincorporated community of McKenzie Bridge in Lane County in the U.S. state of Oregon. Built in 1930, the structure, long, carried Horse Creek Road over Horse Creek. The creek is a tributary of the McKenzie River. Bypassed by a concrete bridge in 1968, Horse Creek Bridge was not dismantled until 1987. During the intervening years, it served as a pedestrian bridge. Its timbers were donated to the City of Cottage Grove, which used some of them to build a small covered bridge in a park. The remaining timbers were given to the City of Myrtle Creek in 1990 for a covered bridge over Myrtle Creek. The bridge connects a parking area to the city's Mill Site Park. The creek is a tributary of the South Umpqua River. The 1930 bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and removed after 1987. Features included Howe truss construction, ribbon openings at the eaves, rectangular arched portals, and an eye-level window on one side for spotting oncoming traffic.

Cannot drive through this covered bridge. Easy to miss. Look for the sign that says "Covered Bridge" with arrows at both ends. The left arrow will lead you to Neal Lane Covered Bridge and the right arrow to Horse Creek Covered Bridge. Best to take pictures in the morning

Built in 1930, this 110-foot bridge originated in Lane County, where is spanded the McKenzie River.  Closed to crossing since 1968, this bridge dound a new life in 1990 when it was disassembled and moved to its current site in Myrtle Creek's Millsite Park, where it is used as a footbridge.
