Note
The Chambers Covered Bridge is the last covered railroad bridge in Oregon. It was built by lumberman J. H. Chambers to move logs across the Coast Fork Williamette River to the Chambers sawmill. The bridge was in operation from 1925 to 1951. In 2006, it was acquired by the city of Cottage Grove.
