Glass Mill Bridge located in Wilmore, KY is a four-span stone arch bridge over Jessamine Creek. The European style limestone bridge was part of a Works Progress Administration project in the mid-1930s. The bridge is among some of the Kentucky scenes photographed by James Archambeault several years ago. I enjoy Mr. Archambeault's books very much and after reading Kentucky, Kentucky II & Kentucky III, I realized that I too have visited and photographed many of the same "Kentucky scenes" that he mentions in his books. I've never met him but his books certainly inspire me! In June 1933, The Public Works Administration, in response to the Great Depression, built large-scale public works such as dams, bridges, hospitals, and schools. Its goals were to spend $3.3 billion in the first year, and $6 billion in all, to provide employment, stabilize purchasing power, and help revive the economy. Most of the spending came in two waves in 1933-35, and again in 1938. Originally called the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works, it was renamed the Public Works Administration in 1935 and shut down in 1944.
