Bridge Length = 58'
Antelope Covered Bridge was built in 1922. The bridge originally spanned Antelope Creek some 10 miles southeast of Eagle Point.
In August 1987, the structure was loaded onto a makeshift trailer and volunteers hauled it to the city of Eagle Point. It was moved from its original location to save from destruction. Today, Antelope Creek Bridge is a pedestrian wooden covered bridge.
When the bridge was rebuilt at the new site, arched openings were cut into each side so school children could be watched as they crossed the span. An elementary school is right next to the covered bridge. This alteration modified its look and so; for some time the bridge was removed from the lists of registered historical places.
There is parking at both ends of the bridge making it very easy to view and enjoy.
The creek that runs beneath the bridge these days is Little Butte Creek.
If you are a covered bridge enthusiast, Antelope Covered Bridge would be a sure nice addition to your list.
