Cottage Grove Oregon

"The first thing most newcomers to Cottage Grove, Oregon notice is that people they don't yet know will look them in the eye and speak with them on the street. The second thing is the quality and diversity of the people here. Because the area is so attractive, individuals and families from all over the country have been drawn to the community. Boating, swimming, fishing and water skiing are available at two lakes, each six miles from the city center. Three public golf courses are in the Cottage Grove area. Cottage Grove Oregon nestles at the southern tip of the Willamette Valley, where the Cascade Mountains touch Oregon's coastal mountain range. In a ten-minute drive you can be in the forest. In 30 minutes you can be in wilderness. Opportunities for fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, horseback riding, cross-country and downhill skiing, snowmobiling, fourwheeling and wilderness exploring are plentiful, and may prove irresistible to outdoor enthusiasts."  Cottage Grove Oregon Chamber of Commerce

Attractions

Chambers Railroad Bridge
About a half a mile from Main Street on South River Road, just past Harrison Avenue, this bridge is the only remaining covered railroad bridge in Oregon It was built in 1925 to bring logs to the J.H. Chambers Mill in Cottage Grove. The bridge is 78 feet long.

Cottage Grove Museum
Birch and H Sts., Cottage Grove, Oregon, phone: 541-942-3963
The museum's focus is on industrial, farm, mining, and household tools. Bohemia Mines memorabilia is also on display. The museum features a 19th century octagonal church with its original stained glass windows.

Cottage Theater
P. O. Box 883, 700 Village Drive, Cottage Grove, OR 97424, phone: (541) 942-8001, email: info@cottagetheatre.org
Since our humble beginnings under a parachute, we've proven that it takes more than a gust of wind to keep this theatre down. From our early days on a tiny stage to the "impossible dream" of a "real" playhouse, Cottage Theatre has flourished, and as we pave new roads in the 21st century, look forward to seeing us continue to push the boundaries outward. Watch as the theatre develops and expands. Participate as we grow as artists and as a community.

Currin Bridge
The Currin Bridge, named for an early pioneer family in the area, is sometimes referred to as the Row River Bridge because of the Stream it crosses. The original bridge was built by Nels Roney in 1883 for the cost of $1,935. When the bridge was to be replaced in 1925, County officials decided it could build the bridge cheaper than the lowest bid of $6,250. County employees constructed the bridge for $4,205 and saved a total of $2,495 tax dollars. Design elements include single-piece hand hewn chords, cross-wise planking on the approaches, and a corrugated metal roof.

Dorena Bridge
Located at the upper end of Dorena Reservoir, the Dorena Covered Bridge was built in conjunction with the completion of Dorena Dam. Sometimes referred to as Star Bridge, it provides access to the nearby Star Ranch. Star Ranch was once a large private estate that has been reduced to about 100 acres. The original town site named for Dora Burnette and Rena Martin (by combining parts of their first names) is underwater at the bottom of the reservoir.

Mosby Creek Bridge
The Mosby Creek Bridge is Lane County's oldest covered bridge. It was built in 1920 at a cost of $4,125 and was named for the pioneer David Mosby. David Mosby settled in 1853 and staked claim to 1,600 acres east of the present day city of Cottage Grove.

Stewart Bridge
Constructed in 1930, Stewart Bridge has borne the brunt of many nature's whims. The raging water of the 1964 Christmas Flood caused the lower chords of the bridge to crack. A few years later, heavy snowfall caused the roof bracing to give way and the entire roof caved in. Repairs to the bridge made it usable until it was bypassed in the 1980s by a concrete bridge.

Willamette Valley Covered Bridge Tour
A tour of "kissing bridges". Although they were built to protect their wooden platforms from Western Oregon's abundant rainfall, covered bridges also became known for protecting couples in search of a little privacy And thus, these bridges earned themselves the nickname "kissing bridges." Set out via car or bike to tour a dozen of Oregon's remaining covered bridges, showcased on these two loops that surround the Albany and Cottage Grove areas just off I-5. And relive the romance.
