Also known as the Pengra Bridge, the Fall Creek Covered Bridge is famous for having two of the longest timbers that were ever cut for a bridge in the entire state of Oregon. These timbers measure 16 inches by 18 inches by 126 feet. It was cut by the Booth-Kelly Lumber Company.

The Fall Creek Bridge itself was built in 1938. It measures 120 feet long and has replaced a longer, 190-foot span upstream. The bridge was used until 1979 when the county decided to close it for safety reasons.

In 1995, the Fall Creek Bridge was opened again. It was through the efforts of the county, after years of being delayed, with the aid of the Oregon Covered Bridge Program.
