As crazy as it might seem, bridges haven 't always spanned the Willamette Valley 's waterways. Dating back to the mid-1800s, these heavily trafficked highways led travelers from the budding Rose City to ferries that, for a fee, carried people, livestock, wagons and cars across various rivers. Throughout the state 's history, more than 500 of the boats traversed Oregon 's rivers and lakes. "Almost every pioneer community, especially those in the Willamette Valley, was tied to the rest of the territory by roads or trails crossing at least one waterway on a ferry, so ferries were essential facts of life," wrote the late Charles F. Query in 2008 's "A History of Oregon Ferries since 1826."
