    • Colette, I believe you found it! Weirdly, Foster Bridge is not listed Lee H. Nelson’s “Oregon Covered Bridges.” I have the 1976 edition which should be the most up to date…

      I don’t think the first bridge is the same one though. I’m leaning towards it being the Hufford Bridge across the Middle Santiam River on Hufford Road off of Quartville Road. It is listed as “3 miles east of Foster.” The surroundings look the same, and they both have the Howe Truss system with the exposed sides. If that is the case though, it was destroyed in 1966 when the Foster Reservoir was created. http://photos.salemhistory.net/cdm/ref/collection/max/id/4764
