Historical Marker Completion Expected for Frontier Days Celebration

Paris recently applied for and received a grant from the Arkansas Sesquicentennial Foundation to commemorate the Haguewood Battle.  An historical marker is expected to be completed in time for this year’s Frontier Day celebration and will eventually be placed at the corner of airport road and highway 22.

The Arkansas Department of Heritage will feature an article on the Haguewood Prairie in the fall edition of the Arkansas Civil War Heritage trail.  The quarterly magazine is distributed throughout Arkansas and surrounding states and serves as an informational guide to historians and various groups that explore historical sites.  Placement of historical markers and signs serve as a powerful reminder of local history and also preserve history that would otherwise be lost.

The local committee organizing Logan County’s Civil War Sesquicentennial activities are Joyce Trusty, Linda Hamilton, Ty Varnell, Glen Gilbreath, and Dr. Curtis Varnell.  Additional  historical information about Logan County and the Battle of Haguewood Prairie can be found on the Arkansas Encyclopedia of History and Culture
