About half of Oregon's 600 covered bridges remain. The co- founder of the Covered Bridge Society of Oregon presents a historic photographic tour of these wooden structures financed by tolls constructed from the mid-1850s to the 1950s in 14 counties from Benton to Yamhill. The cover photo of a girl selling cookies and worms during fishing season aptly illustrates the nostalgic appeal of these icons of the past.
