Significance: The Mulladay Hollow Bridge is one of eight known masonry arch bridges in Arkansas. It was constructed as part of the Leatherwood Lake Recreation Project, that also included a massive stone dam creating Leatherwood Lake and several camping facilities. Like the Cedar Creek Bridge in Conway County and the Spring Lake Bridge in Yell County, the Mulladay Hollow Bridge was created under the authority of the Federal Government through a labor intensive program to help alleviate local unemployment during the Depression of the 1930s. A unique design feature in the Mulladay Hollow Bridge not seen in other masonry arch bridges in Arkansas is the curved "Ice Breaker" on the center pier of the west elevation.
