I know that its old. I looked underneath and at the concrete part and I saw where it was formed using wood planks. I bet it is at least 1920's or older.
Its hard to tell without closer photos, but the underside of the bridge looks like concrete (unless its been shotcreted), and while elliptical stone arches do exist, the shape is more common with concrete arches, so I wonder if it isn't as old as they think, and is instead a stone faced concrete arch bridge. There is the potential that its a very old 19th century (ie 1890s) stone faced concrete arch too, I don't want to give the impression that such a bridge isn't possible, although that would be rare.
One of the most beautiful of the bridges in the Louisville area, and apart of a NRHP property, the build date of this bridge remains sort of a mystery. The property, according to the NRHP form, was settled in 1789, but the form does not directly give a specific date for the bridge. The golf course staff says the bridge was built sometime in the 1800's but they do not know the specific year. Anyway, if anyone has a clue as to the specific date of construction please chime in!
