Along the Row (which is short for Rowdy and pronounced accordingly) River just to the east of Cottage Grove are two covered bridges. There are actually seven bridges linked together in a single tour route and maps are available from the Bohemia Mining Museum in old Cottage Grove, or you can follow this route here: http://www.ehow.com/how_4523102_explore-cottage-grove-covered-bridge.html
Currin Covered Bridge
I’m not able to find much historical information about the Currin Bridge other then it was named after early settlers in the area.
The town of Dorena was apparently an extremely rowdy western town. Being the closest town to the Bohemia Mine area it no doubt served all the lonely miner’s needs. The river and later road took their name from this fact, being shortened to “Row River” and “Row Road”. The town was established in 1899 and was named after Dora Burnette and Rena Martin. The town existed until 1949 when the Dorena Dam was completed to control floods in the area.
The town was of course moved up the road a few miles but never really grew back. It’s mostly 50′s era quickly built houses which are little more then one bedroom shacks and a single gas stations/quick mart type store that serves travelers headed into the Bohemia Recreation area.
