This park preserves the site of historic Davidsonville. Established in 1815, the town included the Arkansas Territory’s first post office, courthouse and land office. Bypassed by the Southwest Trail, an overland route from St. Louis to the border of Mexico, the town faded by the 1830s. Today, park exhibits and interpretive tours provide information about this important frontier town.
