The Dorena Covered Bridge was built in 1949. It was put in the National Register in 1979. In 1996 the bridge was rehabilitated.
The bridge was built for access across the Row River. It cost $16,547 to build this beautiful structure. It is 1 out of 6 bridges that are still available to visit here in Cottage Grove, Oregon.
I would recommend all 6 bridges for a rustic photo backdrop. The design of each bridge is different from the next.
