Historical Note

In 1926 in Arkansas, the Daughters of the American Revolution of Lee and Phillips Counties erected a monument at the starting place of the survey of the vast lands acquired in the Louisiana Purchase. The location of this marker, located in a large and inaccessible swamp, was subsequently lost. In 1967, John Fleming (the "Outdoors" section editor for the Arkansas Gazette) became interested in discovering the location of the marker. His efforts culminated in the establishment of the Louisiana Purchase State Park. Dedication ceremonies were held on 1972 June 25.
