Gallon House Bridge, Silverton

(4.3/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Gallon House Bridge is a wooden covered bridge spanning Abiqua Creek in rural Marion County, Oregon, United States, built in 1916. The 84ft long bridge derived its name during prohibition when it was a meeting place for bootleggers and moonshiners. The bridge was swept off its footings in the December 1964 flood, but was restored immediately after. Gallon House Bridge is about 2mi north-northwest of the city of Silverton west of Oregon Route 214 on Gallon House Road.
