Mike Watson: 1914 Plum Point Bridge - a splendid piece of work

By Mike Watson, Adair County, KY, historian

With all the good bridge work in Adair County, and the opening of the Frank Dohoney bridge yesterday, thought I would send a snip from the Adair County News, issue of June 10, 1914, just a century ago, of the new Plum Point Bridge. MW
Bridge Received and Bill Paid
The people living on Green river and at Knifley and Roley are greatly eleated over the replacing of the iron bridge across Green river at Plum Point. The Fiscal Court met a few days ago, received the bridge, after inspection, and paid for it. The total cost of replacing, some few pieces having to be supplied, was $2, 100. It is said to be a splendid piece of work and is pronounced one of the best bridges in the county.
