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.Use our Silverton vacation builder to visit Gallon House Bridge on your trip to Silverton, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

Best beer selection in town, and great food & service to boot.
A great place for beers in Silverton. They carry mostly Oregon brewed selections here and love that. I wouldn't recommend the food. Mediocre. At fare. It's not horrible. K?
We love this place. No matter what we order, it tastes great. Revolving tap with 30 varieties.
Great beer selection but weird vibe from staff and customers. Kind of like a underachieving frat house.
This is a lovely place to sit on the patio with a beverage on a lazy afternoon. The food is good, I had a chicken sandwich with bacon and cheese with a side of crispy fries. They even had gluten free bread. Service was quick even when they were busy.
