Vida Oregon 97488

Located on Oregon Route 126 and the McKenzie River. Vida was first named "Gate Creek", but this caused much confusion with the community of "Gates Creek" in Washington County, so the name of the postmaster's daughter's name was selected instead. The Vida post office was established on April 12, 1898. The postmaster was Francis A. Pepiot. Vida is home to the historic Goodpasture Bridge, a covered bridge that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It is the second-longest covered bridge in Oregon.
