Wallace covered bridge

Wallace covered bridge spans the South Yamhill River near Willamina, Oregon, and the Yamhill-Polk County line. The 120 foot span was built in 1919 by contractor Earl Bushnell for $3,868.71 and was expected to last 40 years. The bridge was by-passed in 1935 and left standing. A strong wind in the 1940s blew it into the river., Courtesy of State Library of Oregon.
