Gallon House Bridge
Artist Lori L Rodrigues painted this mural, located at the corner of Lewis and South Water Streets, in 2000. It depicts the Gallon House Bridge, an eighty-four foot structure that is the only covered bridge in Marion County that people can still drive through. The bridge was dubbed the Gallon House Bridge back during prohibition when locals knew it as the place to pick up a bottle of moonshine or steal a kiss from a pretty girl. Here is the poem by the mural’s artist:
The Gallon House Bridge Poem by Lori Webb 2000
Return to a day
When they’d steal away
To sneak a kiss,
Or moonshine, or fish
Neath the old covered bridge
They named it the Gallon House
After a place near by
Cross the Abiqua
To Mount Angel
When Silverton was ‘dry’
In Nineteen hundred
Built to last
The years have passed
Oh, the stories it has seen.
