Abstract

Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 3308. Specifications, including sketches, for the construction of a bridge across Skaggs Creek in Barren County, Kentucky. The detailed specifications as to design, dimensions, materials, and method of construction were prepared by a commission appointed by the Barren County Court. Unable to secure a bid to erect the bridge for the appropriated sum of $1,000, the commission recommended an additional appropriation in order to accept a bid of $1,200.
