  • We moved to Broadbent from Bandon November 1967. Road the bus into Myrtle Point for school. The Broadbent bridge collapsed about 1969 when a dump truck drove over it. The school bus had crossed an hour before the truck.

  • It still existed in the 50’s, had a store & post office then. Located between Myrtle Point & Powers.
