Conser Early Booster
The bridge was named the Con
ser bridge because of the import
ant role Jacob Conser played at
Jefferson. He built and operated
a ferry across the Santlam river
in 1851: In 1890 a wooden bridge
was built and in 1910 the old
steel bridge was finished.
The cost of the new bridge is
about" 1 150,000. It is over 700 feet
in . length, with approaches, and
has three halt - arch spans. The
roadway is 24 feet wide, with
side walks on either side, outside

in June. 1932, and it was opened
July 1 of this year.
Jacob Conser. a pioneer of
1847. platted the townslte of Jef
ferson which in early days was
known as Conser's Ferry. He was
a native of Pennsylvania, and at
the age of 21, he was married
and came west as far as Illinois,
where he ran a sawmill, until he
came to Oregon in 1847. Conser
lived in Linn county aa late as
1849 in the Scio district. In 1851
he was living in Santlam City,
and was postmaster of Syracuse,
a settlement near there, located
on both sides of the Santlam riv
er. Flood Starts Jefferson
The flood of 1850-51 washed
out most of the buildings on both
sides, particularly a saw and grist
mill which had been built. These
mills were badly damaged so Con
ser moved up the river wnere
Jefferson is now located, the
town which he started. In 1849
he had taken land between the
Bates and Holt claims and built
a log cabin, and around these two
homes,, the town of Jefferson was
built. It received the name of
Jefferson at the time of the es
tablishment of the Jefferson in
stitute in 1859.
Conser had his new saw mill
running in 1853, and a year later
he built - a frame house, large
enough to accommodate guests,
which was the first hotel building.
In 1888 of '70 he built a large
three - story house near the ferry
landing, which was then the fin
est home in the country.
At this time this country was a
stronghold . of democrats, and
Conser was an outstanding man at
the Marion county conventions. In
1858 and 1857, he was president
of the convention and sent to the
territorial convention. He was a
member of the territorial legisla
ture of Marlon county in the spec
ial session of 1853 and regular
session of 1858.
He did everything in his power
to draw settlers to the new com
munlty, and make the city of Jef
JEFFERSON, July 39. The
general committee for making ar
rangements for the dedication - of
the Conser bridge spanning the
santlam river here, announce
that the program will be held in
the shady grounds of Camp San
tlam, Thursday, August 3, from
to 4 o'clock, and any exercises
or features at other than this
time are not under the auspices of
the dedication committee.
Reports which have been used
in connection with the Jefferson
bridge dedication that Jacob Con
ser built the first terry across the
Santlam near Jefferson are in
correct, according to Mrs. J. C.
Siegmund. Conser built his ferry
m 1851. Prior to this, in Jann
ary and February, 1848, Milton
Hale built and operated a ferry
about a mile below the present
site of Jefferson, in the old town
of Syracuse. Hale's terry ante
dated that of Conser by several
years and according to oldtlmers
is the first ferry built in that sec
