Myrtle Creek is a city
located in Douglas County, Oregon between Roseburg and
Canyonville. Along the I-5.
It was first visited by settlers and gold seekers in the
1840's,and was originally plotted by 1893. From its
founding to the present day, the area's greatest wealth
has been its forests, which continue to provide rich
harvests. At the timber industry's height, following
World War II, there were 278 mills operating in the
county. One of these mill, Umpqua Forest Products, is
now the site of Horse Creek Bridge, in Millsite
park, the center of attractions in Myrtle Creek.
Another story of salvation for one
of Oregon's covered bridges can be found in this
105 ft. span which now passes through Myrtle Creek
at Millsite Park. The Horse Creek Covered
Bridge was constructed in 1930 featuring the
Howe Truss Design. The bridge was located on Horse
Creek Road in the vicinity of the McKenzie River
Bridge. The Horse Creek Bridge was removed for
salvage by Lane County in December of 1987 and
given to the City of Cottage Grove. As Cottage
Grove had no intentions of reconstructing the
bridge and Myrtle Creek showed and interest in
