Mulladay Hollow Bridge – Eureka Springs AR

Description

“The Mulladay Hollow Bridge was built as part of the Works Progress Administration’s Lake Leatherwood Recreation Area Project.  Its exact date of construction is not known.  The bridge is an excellent Arkansas example of a masonry, closed spandrel, deck arch bridge type built during the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department Era:  1921-1939.  It is similar in design and administrative history (WPA, CCC, USRA) to the Milltown Bridge in Sebastian County (HAER No. AR-55), Cedar Creek Bridge in Conway County (HAER No. AR-31) and the Spring Lake Bridge in Yell County (HAER No. AR-36).  The Mulladay Hollow Bridge was constructed under the authority of the federal government through a program designed to alleviate local unemployment during the Depression of the 1930’s.”
