Quines Creek Covered Bridge
Maxwell Photo Description
This photo shows the Quines Creek Covered Bridge over Cow Creek (World Guide # 37-10-08) near Azalea off Hwy 99 in Douglas County, Oregon. In 1954 it was in need of repair with vertical boards missing in many places on the sides. It featured horizontal openings the entire length under the roofline. It also exhibited a large opening over the portal, which was the result of damage from a high loaded truck. This bridge was the last of the Smith truss covered bridges to survive in Oregon. The bridge was 100 feet in length and was built in 1913. It lasted until 1958.
