Weddle Bridge - The Weddle Bridge is a 120-foot long wooden covered bridge located in Sweet Home, Oregon, United States. The bridge originally spanned Thomas Creek near Crabtree, Oregon. It was bypassed in 1980 by a concrete bridge. The unused bridge became a safety issue and the span was disassembled in October 1987. In 1989, residents in Sweet Home rallied to rebuild the Weddle Bridge across Ames Creek in Sweet Home. The bridge was temporarily closed in 2005 after an engineering inspection determined that repairs were necessary. The Sweet Home Economic Development Group, using proceeds from the Oregon Jamboree country music festival, contributed $20,000 toward the project. Other local companies and individuals also contributed funds and building materials necessary to repair the bridge. The bridge has been the site for numerous weddings and community events.
