Eagle Points beloved Covered Bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places. More accurately described as Covered Bridge 202, it was originally called the Yankee Creek Covered Bridge, carrying vehicle traffic across Antelope Creek on Yankee Creek Road. The City of Eagle Point obtained Bridge 202 from Jackson County and moved it to the Little Butte Creek location in 1986 to provide safe passage from North Royal Avenue to North Shasta Avenue for school children and the general public. The bridge and move was supported and funded by the citizens of Eagle Point through donations.
Bridge 202 was built in 1922 and features a queenpost truss construction style, with cantilevered buttresses, cedar roof, ribbon openings under the eaves and is 58 feet long.

Due to the historic value and public support that went into the acquisition and moving of Bridge 202, special care is needed to preserve and protect the construction, integrity, and maintain a safe route for pedestrian traffic.

Directions: From Highway 62 in Eagle Point, turn east onto Linn Road. Travel to South Buchanan Avenue and turn left. Turn right onto West Main Street and continue to Royal Avenue. The bridge is located in the City of Eagle Point at the intersection of Main Street and Royal Avenue.
