Arkansas -- The Natural State. The state was founded in 1836 as the East expanded into the West. It is called

the “Natural State” because we’re positively bursting at the seams with Nature, beautiful lakes and streams, amazing state parks, outdoor pursuits (hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking), small-town festivals, mom-and-pop diners...and we tend to live life to its fullest, in a slower, more relaxed way. While the state’s official history is very interesting, the Arkansans can be still more intriguing. Did you know, for instance, that Fried Dill Pickles (don’t knock ‘em till you’ve tried ‘em!) were the invention of Bernell “Fatman” Austin who first sold them at his Duchess Drive-In in Atkins, Arkansas in 1963? Pretty creative, huh? That’s one of nice things about Arkansas. We are adventurous and we aren’t afraid to try new things. The creative and entreprenurial spirits are alive and well in north central Arkansas! Come visit the smallest town to boast a Historic District in the state (Hardy), or the largest spring in the state (Mammoth Spring), do some world-class river fishing on the Spring River, ride the 60mph Zippin’ Griffin zip line, the longest and fastest in Arkansas! (Griffin Park, Hardy). Come for a visit or come to stay! Cherokee Village is hometown of the CMA award-winning band (LIttle Big Town’s) own Phillip Sweet. Left-handed major league pitching phenomenon, “Preacher” Roe, was born in Ash Flat. The Wilburn Brothers and Lauren Gray (of American Idol fame) are from Hardy...Arkansans.

~American Veterans Memorial and the Ash Flat Ball Park

Total Area: 5.56 Miles

Ash Flat, originally named in honor of the ash trees in the area, has remained a major economic center ever since it was originally settled in the early 1800s. It is home to an Ozarka College campus, which provides quality education within both driving distance and the budgets of local residents. The Sharp County Regional Airport is located on the edge of Ash Flat and

Even in wintertime, the weather here is usually mild enough to play outside...most days! Cherokee Village. The American Veterans Memorial is close in to town. Eagle Fest, a two-day regional celebration, takes place in the fall of each year. The city was originally in Lawrence County during the time when Arkansas received statehood status in 1836, but when the population flourished following the Civil war, the city found itself in newly-formed Sharp County in 1868. By 1871, remote Ash Flat boasted, a population of 150, and had a blacksmith shop, three stores, two saloons, and a cotton gin which was placed near Big Creek so that fresh water would be available for the oxen that turned the tread wheel. By 1889, the town had grown to include a drug store, a saddlemaker, a sawmill to handle the increasing lumber flow, a grist/flour mill, a hotel, two churches, one physician, a Masonic Lodge and an Eastern Star Lodge. The population, however, grew slowly. Ash Flat’s first high school opened in 1905 after citizens donated to have it built and this provided the opportunity for a quality education. In 1967, the two county seats that had existed in Sharp County for more than seventy years (Hardy and Evening Shade) were merged with centrally located Ash Flat becoming the new center of government operations. Ash Flat has been home to a couple of notable people including David W. Mullins, born in 1906, who served as president of the University of Arkansas (UA) in Fayetteville from 1960 to 1974. Charles Elvin “Preacher” Roe was born in 1915 and became a left-handed major league baseball pitcher winning 127 games with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Brooklyn Dodgers, and St. Louis Cardinals between 1938 and 1953. “Preacher” Roe also invested a lot of time locally working with youth in education and baseball. Housing: in 2009: Median House/Condo: $62, 883, Rent $376. Crime: 59.2 (low) on a scale where average in US is 259.7. Median Income: $17,278 Median age: 53.4.

The Ash Flat American Veterans Memorial is definitely worth the visit! Leonard H. Holden, Jr., has designed a beautiful tribute, and the dedication and persistant effort of individuals and organizations in the community have supported the project and brought to life a much more impressive permanent memorial than most small towns could ever dream of. The men, women, and working dogs who comprise the bulk of our fighting forces from any era are represented here. Whether you visit for education, commemoration or meditation, you won’t be disappointed!

The Ash Flat American Veterans Memorial is located in a peaceful location on Nix Ridge Road, the Memorial holds many interesting statues and historical plaques and is a quiet, fitting place to contemplate our country’s history and the fight to protect our freedoms and independence in a changing world.. The monuments pay remembrance to those who sacrificed a little or who gave everything they had to defend our country or provide asistance to others who needed an equalizing force and ally to halt aggressors bent on domination or destruction.

The Ash Flat Ball Park has several fields with lots of space for casual or organized games such as baseball or soccer, day or night. Warm-up/batting cages are available to help with honing skills. There is a lighted walking trail. The park also has a large, fenced playground for children (and parents) to enjoy. It’s a great place for family and friends to spend time together and picnic or have a reunion. Use the beautiful gazebo for your next get-together!

These days, Cherokee Village has a terrific Thunder on Thunderbird Fireworks celebration on the Fourth of July, and it’s combined with Thunderfest, which is a helicopter and boat show! Something for everyone! The extravaganzas take place on Thunderbird Lake near the marina. The Spring River Farmer’s Market is moving to Town Center this year, and it will have family friendly events, local produce and flowers, and hand-made crafts done by local artisans. Combine this with two eighteen-hole golf courses, six swimming pools, beaches, tennis courts, recreation centers, a fitness center, senior center, horseshoe pits, nature trails, seven lakes for boating or fishing and approximately 100 service organizations or clubs you can be involved with, and Cherokee Village will be worth a visit! Check the Community Calender in this Guide or www. Chris Gra efe for more info. In 1948, a developer by the name of John A. Cooper Sr. purchased 400 acres along the south bank of the Spring River and for several years used the land as a family summer retreat. Over time, Cooper began to buy more land and formed the Cherokee Village Development Company (CVDC), dividing the property into lots and building homes. When Cooper opened the development in June of 1955, the then Governor Orval Faubus, stated it was the “coming Mecca of the Ozarks.” Cherokee Village was founded in 1954 and began as a 2,400-acre summer resort near Hardy. Soon after it’s founding, Cherokee Village became Arkansas State’s leading retirement community, and by the early 1960s, retirees from across the nation moved into the Spring River Area, turning Cherokee Village into a popular retirement center. Within the span of only a few years, Cherokee Village had grown so vastly that more land was needed for new homes. The community’s infrastructure had grown to include two golf courses, seven lakes, three recreation centers, more than 300 miles of roads and a water system for its residents. When the development tried to grow, however, the adjoining land was occupied by the Memphis Boy Scout Council’s summer camp, Kia Kima. So, In 1964, the same year that Highland High School opened, Cooper approached the Boy Scouts and negotiated to swap them a larger tract of land on the south fork of the Spring River in exchange for their property, and they agreed. By 1980, between the Kia Kima trade and additional land purchases, Cherokee Village grew to a whopping 13,500 acres. According to the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, the development of Cherokee Village in 1955 had a major impact on the retirement community industry and helped to make Arkansas the ninth most popular destination state for retirees. Phillip Sweet from the award-winning country band Little Big Town is from Cherokee Village, and World Golf Hall of Famer Tommy Bolt had retired there. Francis Wilson Grayson was a female aviator who was lost when her plane went down en route to Newfoundland to initiate her bid to be the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927. This flight honor was won by Amelia Earhart in 1928, however, Grayson Lake in northern Ontario, Canada (50.88°N 89.43°W) was named for and remains a tribute to Frances Wilson Grayson who was born in Cherokee Village, Arkansas around1890. 8

(County Seat: Ash Flat) Established: July 18, 1868

Total Area: 604.44 square miles

Established in 1868 of land split away from Lawrence County, and increased in 1873 with land separated from Independence County, Sharp County is located in northern Arkansas adjacent to Missouri and surrounded by Randolph, Lawrence, Independence, Izard, and Fulton Counties (clockwise from the Missouri border). It was named for Ephraim Sharp, a Lawrence-county legislator, who lived in Evening Shade and the original county seat was there, also. In 1894, the citizenry decided they wanted to have more access to the powers that be, and the Spring and Strawberry Rivers made that difficult because there were few if any ways to cross them, so a second seat was established in Hardy for residents in the northern part of the county. In a letter sent to Arkansas’s first appointed Commissioner of Immigration and State Lands, H.L. Roberts described the area as “having a healthy section of the state known for its bountiful fruit trees, abundance of State of Arkansas, iumber, plentiful game, scenic grassSharp County Highlighted lands, and rivers.” Sharp County remains quietly famous for excellent fishing, hunting, and timber, but it has stayed rural and lightly populated with approximately 28 people per square mile. The retirement resort towns of Cherokee Village and Horseshoe Bend have drawn a steady supply of cost-conscious retirees. Hardy has remained a steady tourist destination, craft and antique-shopping area over many years. It is a peaceful area where people enjoy a slower pace of life. Indian artifacts, including arrowheads and occasional pieces of pottery can still be found along the banks of many of the smaller streams. The earliest non-native settlers began entering the area in the early 1800s. There were no major Civil War battles in the County, however, there was the Battle of Salem/Action at Spring River (Mar. 13, 1862), and skirmishes at Martin’s Creek (Jan. 7, 1864) and Morgan’s Mill (Feb. 8, 1864). A historical marker is in place a few miles east of Hardy. The Kansas City, Springfield, and Memphis Railroad built a line between Memphis (TN) and Kansas City (MO) that ran through Hardy and Williford and these towns flourished during construction and through the years of passenger and freight service which began in 1883. The tiny town of Wirth was settled in 1883. The County was home to seventy-nine one-room schoolhouses at one time. Originally dubbed “Loyal” (it is said this was due to its loyalty to the Union during the Civil War), Cave City is located in the southern part. It is known for its sweet watermelons. The name of the city was changed in 1880 because it is built above a large cave through which flows the Crystal River. The River is only accessible through the Crystal River Tourist Camp, which is now privately owned and closed to the public. What is known about the river is that it is home to a rare species of freshwater shrimp, Bacturus speleopolis, and an eyeless sucker fish. The rural lifestyle of Sharp County helped diminish the hard times of the Great Depression. People there knew how to garden, and raise meat and milk. Then came World War II and many families suffered losses as their menfolk went to war—some never to return. Other families followed what work was left, including picking fruit on the west coast. Cherokee Village, a retirement/resort community which made Arkansas a prime destination for retirement, opened in 1955, and by 1960 the population was booming. The town of Highland was incorporated in 1998. It had been conveniently located betA historical marker on Main Street in Hardy discusses the ween Hardy and Ash Flat, and it seemed a logical choice for the new schools needed to “two seats of justice” Sharp county had before Ash Flat accommodate increasing population in the ‘60s. (Continued on page 34 - see Sharp County History) was chosen to be the only county seat.

Hardy is a unique city in north central Arkansas where you can take a leisurely walk through the smallest city to have a historic district in the state. It also has a wonderful “Main Street” community full of businesses specializing in crafts, antiques and unusual items awaits shoppers. Thompson Park in the center of town is dedicated to Dr. Audrey Thompson, whose tireless efforts have resulted in recognition of multiple buildings by the National Register of Historic Places. There are many stone and wooden structures dating back to the early 1800s, some with unusual architectural styles. Loberg Park, along the edge of the Spring River, hosts many festivals and celebrations as well as providing a walking trail for the city where mild breezes and the flow of the river provide a relaxing atmosphere. Loberg also has playground equipment for youngsters. The city of Hardy, which is named after railroad contractor James A. Hardy of Batesville, is located along the Spring River and was established in 1883 after the construction of the Kansas City, Springfield, and Memphis Railroads. During the twentieth century and much like today, Hardy was viewed as a popular tourist destination for those who sought a relaxed environment and the beauty of the Ozarks. They came from Memphis and all over. The 600 acres that then formed the Hardy area, were developed by Walker Clayton in 1883. He was able to take care of the service needs of the many travelers who came to the area. By the early 1920s, Main Street was filled with businesses, including a bank, a couple of cafès, drug stores, a Ford automobile dealership and a grocery store. A core group of influential businesses owners, one in particular, drugstore-owner William Johnston tenaciously promoted Hardy as a place where city dwellers could find not only a wonderful destination for vacation, but also a place to call home. Lauren Gray and Fans According to the Arkansas State Encyclopedia, during an interview with a Memphis Press-Scimitar reporter, Johnston boasted that Hardy had the “finest fishing in the world….” In the 1970s, when the railroad depot was no longer in service, some of the Main Street businesses relocated and several shops specializing in crafts and antiques were opened. The interesting works of the townspeople, vendors and crafters, along with the draw of the beauty of the Ozarks, has helped Hardy to continue to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the state of Arkansas even to date.

Population in 2011: 1044 Incorporated: 1998 Total Area: 8.74 square miles When Sharp County was created in 1868 much of the terrain consisted of heavily wooded areas. In 1889, two men, Thomas Irvie and Thomas J. Harris, were among the first to own land in what would become the City of Highland , so named because it’s high elevation. A post office was placed in the city but ended up being closed because of the area’s slim population numbers. During the early 1920s U.S. Highway 62 was built through the heart of what is now Highland. This allowed for easier travel for settlers and more opportunities for the residents of Highland. It wasn’t until the consolidation of the Ash Flat and Hardy school districts that the City of Highland would begin to grow by leaps and bounds. Highland was chosen as the site for the new school because it was the middle point between the two cities. Although Ash Flat and Hardy both maintained elementary schools, in 1964 the first seventh grade class of students began attending their new high school at Highland. Soon thereafter, the adjacent communities grew as Highland did, creating a need for an additional elementary school, which is now known as Cherokee Elementary. Seven years later, a middle school was added to the city of Highland. Established in 1955, the the nearby Cherokee Village retirement community quickly began to grow. This created a need for more industry and amenities which were built in Highland. The city incorporated in 1998, and continues to grow to this day. Highland was hit by the Super Tuesday F4 tornado in 2008. While much of the business district was destroyed, the community pulled together and slowly rebuilt, and the fire department moved into its beautiful permanent station two years later. The Highland School District educated 1626 students in 2011. The Mascot: Rebels. Housing in 2009: Median House/Condo: $76,116, Rent $484.

Incorporated: April 29, 1907

Cave City was named for the large multi-chambered natural limestone cavern, Crystal River Cave, which lies 75-100 feet immediately beneath the city. The Crystal River, which runs through the cave was the source of water for the school and town residents for many years. The cave was used for refrigeration. Over the years, many rumors have been associated with the cave -- from people who never surfaced from their visits to the healing waters it contained...and the fact that the river contains an eyeless species of fish. An 1896 article which appeared in the Sharp County Record billed Cave City as a great place to visit with “the finest cave in Northeast Arkansas containing the finest subterranean lake in the state.” The annual Watermelon Festival was begun in 1980 and continues to run each August with free watermelon for attendees supplied by local Cave City Watermelon growers. A sign in town proclaims “Welcome to Cave City: Home of World’s Sweetest Watermelons.” Melon, poultry, and cattle production are alive and well in Cave City. The town is approximately 15 miles from Batesville, Arkansas, which is a thriving community of 10,269. Many Cave City residents commute to jobs there. The Cave City School District has Elementary, Intermediate, Middle, and High Schools which provided education for just over 1300 students in 2012. High School Mascots: The Cavemen. Housing in 2009: Median House/ Condo: $66,800, Median Rent: $481 per month. Crime: Cave City’s Violent Crime/ Property Crime rates were 75.57% /51.39% LOWER than the national rate in 2010 and are projected to be dropping. Median Income in ‘09, $29.287. Median age of residents: 35.8years. Cost of Living Index (low): 79.4% with U.S. average 100%.

Population in 2010: 181~Incorporated: 1935 ~Total Area: 2.2 mi2 Sidney is a small farming community located in southwest Sharp County. It is the venue of a St. Patrick’s Parade which dates back to 1958 when it was started by the Extension Homemakers Club and has remained an annual tradition ever since. Celebrating each St. Patrick’s Day This year the celebration with a parade every year since 1958 has expanded to include a beauty pageant (March 9 the Cave City High School). The area was settled in the 1840s by the Martin, Hodges, and Nunn families. Town grew with the addition of Hodge’s blacksmith shop, then a cotton gin in the late 1850s by William Springer to handle the area’s major crop. Although there were no battles near Sidney, Soldiers from the area fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War at the bloodiest battle in United States history, the Battle of Shiloh in Hardin County, Tennessee, in April 1862. That same year, the Federal Army moved through the Sidney area, causing quite a stir amongst residents. In 1878, a post office was placed at Addison Nunn’s home, and the town was named for General Albert Sidney Johnston, a man Nunn admired and who had perished while leading Confederate forces during the Battle of Shiloh. Samuel Arnn became the nsas town’s first merchant y, Arka e n id S by opening a store in rch in ul Chu if t u the 1880s, and his son, George, a Be opened the first grist mill after that. With the addition of a physician and a bank, town continued to grow despite the fact that the railroad was ten miles away.

Sharp County History (continued from page 9) Ozarka College built a campus in Ash Flat and provides affordable, accessible college-level education locally. Ash Flat was chosen to be the home of the American Veterans Memorial which was built in 2006 to honor veterans of wars US forces have fought in. Evening Shade is probably the County’s best known town because of a sit com based loosely on the town of Evening Shade. The show had an all-star cast led by Burt Reynolds, and ran for four seasons in the 90s, but left a lasting impression on Evening Shade. The Old Independence Regional Museum in Batesville (in Independence County) maintains Sharp County’s history as well as the other twelve counties that origionally made up Independence County. Our local Sharp County libraries have good collections of information on each area and many older residents accurately remember verbal histories passed down from earlier generations of their families. You never know what you’ll discover when you journey to Sharp County!


(Latitude: 36°15’10”N, Longitude 091°21’21”W) Population: 75 • Incorporated: December 8, 1914 • Area: 0.3 square miles. In 1841 Jeremiah Pitt Baird built a homestead on the Spring River. Ambrose Williford moved to the area and became influential as the town grew. During the civil war, many of the town’s men joined Confederate forces, and two skirmishes were fought in the area in 1864 (Martin’s Creek, 1/7 and Morgan’s Mill, 2/9). A local home guard force was formed to protect the area from marauders during this time. J.J. Belamy, was one of the first teachers in Williford’s one-room log schoolhouse that was built in the 1870s, and he moved on to become speaker of the Arkansas House of Representatives. In 1909, he proposed the legislation that gave life to the four state agricultural colleges. The Depression-era Works Progress Administration completed a school building in Williford in1941. David Mullins (Superintendent during 1932–1935) later became president of the University of Arkansas (UA) in Fayetteville. People were excited and moving to town when plans for the railroad were announced and a line was completed in 1883 to run between Memphis (TN) and Springfield (MO). On October 1, 1883, people came from miles around


to watch the first train come through. The population of approximately 275 enjoyed the conveniences of living in a commerce center with passenger and freight transportation running through town. Greenville sprung up when a little fourteen-house work camp was built to support workers for a limestone quarry which had moved operations. The houses were all painted green. Stone was cut and shipped, enough to fill forty to fifty railroad cars each day, and the economy prospered. By 1890, the town had grown to include a doctor’s office, a one-room schoolhouse, three general stores, a post office, a blacksmith shop, a cotton gin and a saloon. By 1900, the population had doubled. A steel frame bridge was constructed across the Spring River in 1907, and increased opportunities for mobility stimulated growth. Williford Methodist church (listed in the National Register of Historic Places) was constructed in 1910. The Sharp County Bank was established by 1911. A ten-room hotel was opened in 1912, and on December 8, 1914, the town was incorporated. In 1915, floods ravaged town and the bridge over the river was washed out. It was rebuilt. By the mid ‘20s, twenty-five businesses (Continued on page 38-- See Williford)

Horseshoe Bend

(Longitude 36° 13’ 45”N Latitude: 091° 45’ 52” W)

Population: 2,179 in 2011~ Incorporated: 1969 ~ Area 13.3 mi2

Horseshoe Bend is the only city in Arkansas that includes land from three counties within its city limits – Izard, Sharp, and Fulton Counties. The Strawberry River winds around the city, but until 1960, no bend in the river had been specifically called “Horseshoe Bend.” In the late 1950s, Bill and Dick Pratt eventually developed the area into the City of Horseshoe Bend, even though the journey was bumpy. The airport was constructed where the woods had once concealed a still. Turkey Mountain’s eighteen-hole golf course was built on what hunters used to call Gobbler Knob, and the first nine holes were opened in 1963 with the remainder finished by 1971. Dams were built on the creeks leading to the Strawberry River which created a series of lakes with Crown Lake being the largest at 640 acres and Cedar Glade lake ending up dry despite much time and expense put forth attempting to plug the holes leading to a massive underground cave which drains the lake. In all, fifty-six subdivisions on 14,000 acres were created. By 1974, the Pratt’s sales team had sold 12,000 lots and more than half of the people who moved there were from Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, and Wisconsin. In 1969, the city was incorporated and a city government created. It had a police force and guaranteed oversight of the city’s utilities. New churches formed in Horseshoe Bend. The Lutheran, Episcopal, and Roman Catholic churches were the first of their denominations in Izard County. Little known is that a small theme park called Ozarkland was created in the city by Albert Gannaway, a Grand Ole Opry-associated producer, who intended to use it for a program called Ozarkland Jamboree. Even though the talent came to the area to do the show, the program and the park both failed. Gene Williams tried to rework the park as Frontierland, but he also was unsuccessful. Many good things happened despite the failures, with jobs and incomes rising in the area. There were more “firsts”…the first public swimming pool in the region was opened and is still in operation. The first Kiwanis club. The first legal drinking. However, in 1974, the Pratts sold their business to a company that turned out to be financially unstable. It’s said that company misappropriated approximately $67 million which had been reserved for maintenance and development of the city. The associated legal entanglements spurred the development of the Municipal Recreation Improvement District which carefully manages Walnut Ridge, Arkansas the recreational assets of the city. The Horseshoe Bend retirement community and resort Higher Learning. area consists of two golf courses, several lakes featuring fishing, boating, and other recreational activities, and Fisherman’s Park with a fishing dock. The city has eight churches and a number of restaurants, stores, and other businesses. Housing in 2009: Median House/Condo: $82,256, Rent $527. Median Income: $29,134. Median age: 59.4. Cost of Living Index: 80.3 (Low) with US average 100%. Median Property taxes: $544/year and non-mortgage properties $400 per/year. Crime: (Low) 120.2 (on a scale where US Average is 319.1)

The Action at Spring River (Battle at Salem) reportedly occurred near where the town of Mammoth Spring is located today. Industries from textile milling to soda bottling sprung up between the 1880s to the 1920s though none remain. A Great Depression-era meat packing plant operated until 1956. Many from Memphis built large homes on the bluffs overlooking the river, preferring the area’s Spring River-generated coolness to the heat of the Delta.

Hunting and Fishing Info HUNTING

If you are 16 or older and you plan to hunt recreationally in Arkansas, unless you are on a licensed game-bird shooting resort that supplies pen-raised birds for the purpose, you will need to get your own Arkansas license, and once you’ve got it, you need to carry it with you anytime you’re hunting. You need to buy a non-resident license if you are not an Arkansas resident. Most sporting goods stores, hunting/fishing supply stores, some discount chains and any AGFC office will have them available. (We’ve got a list of local sources on page 51.) By phone. You can call (800) 364-GAME (4263) 24/7 with your credit card information and an identification number handy. The ID can be a driver’s license, Social Security number, hunter education number, State ID number or passport number. The license is good immediately but you have to have it in hand before hunting big game (deer, turkey, bear, elk, or alligator). If in doubt, always contact Online: You can also purchase your license on line at: Using the same info as getting one on the phone (described above). Your receipt and confirmation will be emailed to you and you can print it yourself as proof, but you’ll still need the one AGFC will mail you before you can go after big game.


If you are 16 or older and you plan to try to catch fish, you’ll need to get and carry your Arkansas fishing license, unless you are fishing in a licensed “put-and-take” pay lake. If there’s a chance you might catch trout, you need to see whether the place you’re fishing requires a trout stamp. Chances are good that you will need one. If you guide or get paid to help people catch fish, that’s a different set of rules, so call the Commercial line at 501-223-6386 for clarification. All official Hunting and Fishing question guidance can be found at: www. The books pictured to the left are available at locations where you can purchase a license, from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, or can be downloaded online at:

Incorporated: April 26, 1870

Evening Shade is perhaps best known to most Americans as the setting for the sitcom, Evening Shade, which ran for four seasons from 1990-1993. Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and her husband, Harry, created the series which featured an all-star cast including Burt Reynolds, a lovable retired football star returned to his hometown to coach the football team. Reynolds also became involved with the real Evening Shade, attending the 1991 high school graduation as Commencement Speaker and later reportedly providing warm-up suits for one of the school teams. Reynolds and the cast members also supported a cookbook proposed by Home Ec teacher Lita King. The community pulled together to raise funds for a full-size gym and auditorium, which was later named the “Burt Reynolds Gymnasium and the Linda Bloodworth Thomason /Harry Thomason Auditorium.” It bears the Evening Shade logo from their successful series. In the early1800s Captain James William Thomson and his family settled in the area and later built a stone mill for grinding the corn that was grown in the area. In1847, a log cabin was utilized as the first school to about 20 students in the immediate area. Evening Shade was a small settlement prior to the Civil war, but it grew considerably following the war when in 1868 Ephraim Sharp, an Evening Shade resident and his brother submitted a request to divide Lawrence County

and create Sharp County. Evening Shade was selected as the county seat. In 1894, this was challenged and the county was divded again, retaining the name, but with Hardy (northern Sharp County) and Evening Shade (southern Sharp County) each being county seats. In 1896, Claude “Bill” Coger became the youngest editor and publisher in Arkansas history when he became involved with the Sharp County Record at age 17. In 1901, the Bank of Evening Shade commenced operations Plum Spring stays protected beand has continued through this neath the natural stone dome. day. Even the Great Depression had little negative effect on the town, but tragedy struck in February of 1941 when fire swept through the town destroying many wooden structures including businesses. Those that were rebuilt were fashioned from stone and remain standing. In 1963, the county seats were consolidated in Ash Flat. In 2004, the Evening Shade School District was consolidated with the Cave City School District, leaving only a Kindergarten through fourth grade school known as Evening Shade Math and Science Academy in Evening Shade, and in 2011 it had 92 pupils. Some facts about the city: In 2012, median asking price of housing/condo was $116,864, and many paid rent of $425$450 per month. Median Income (2010) was $31,894. The median age of residents was 39.5. Cost of Living Index : (low) 82% with the U.S. average being 100%. Median Property Taxes: $409/ year and non-mortgage properties $358/year.

Salem is the Fulton County seat. Both the Strawberry River and the South Fork of the Spring River provide fishing and water recreational opportunities to the area. The rolling hardwood landscape makes for beautiful drives or walks down country lanes. Many planned community events are scheduled in Salem. Many are included in the Calendar in this magazine, but it never hurts to get up-to-date information. Contact (870) 895-5565 for info. When William P. Morris spotted Pilot Knob in 1839, he staked a land grant claim he’d earned in the War of 1812 and thereby established the town which went by the Jr. Fair Queen Pageant award winners. name of Pilot Hill before it became Salem. During the Action at Spring River (Battle of Salem), a fourhour clash between Union troops and Confederate troops aided by some Salem residents, neither side gained ground, but both sides lost men. The Confederates were driven back, and the Union troops retreated to Missouri. Salem has had a weekly newspaper by one name or another ever since 1876 when The Informer was originally started by Jesse Matthews. Jewell B. Wood was the first public health nurse the city had. In 1933 when Wood was hired, many families could not afford any type of health care, so the public health nurse was especially important as rounds were made to visit children at each of the seventy-two county schools. Electricity reached Salem in 1928. It was available between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. Ed and Wyatt Wolf’s original power company eventually became part of the current North Arkansas Electric Cooperative which supplies most of the area today. Fulton County Hospital, one of a small handful of County owned/ operated hospitals remaining in Arkansas today, was started as the dream of Doctors Carl Arnold and David Ducker in the late 1950s. Through coordinated community effort, the hospital opened in March of 1963. Telephone service also reached the area in ’63 via Liberty Telephone and Communications (the pre-cursor to modern-day CenturyTel.) The hospital and the Tri-County Shirt factory employed many of the people who moved to the area and doubled the population between 1960 and 1980. The hospital has been in continuous operation, but the shirt factory closed in 2001 and displaced many skilled workers. The Salem School District provides education for more than 700 students.
