Significance: Gallon House Bridge was so-named because of its proximity to a local "gallon house" that reportedly sold bootleg spirits in the early decades of the twentieth century. Built in 1917 at a cost of $1,310, Gallon House Bridge is the last surviving covered bridge in Marion County and the oldest extant covered bridge in the State of Oregon. It was rehabilitated in 1990 and continues to carry vehicular traffic.
