Summary

Significance: Larwood Bridge is one of the best surviving examples of the standard Howe truss covered bridge designed by the Oregon State Highway Commission in early 20th century. It illustrates the open-sided housing style adopted by Linn County for covered bridges in the 1930s and 40s. The bridge continues to carry traffic and is the focal point of Larwood Wayside Park.
