Here on the Grand Prairie you tread on
soil laid down over the centuries as the
mighty Mississippi and Arkansas Rivers
brought down their precious cargoes of
silt from the northern uplands.

The footprints of many were pressed into
this earth - some merely passed this
way - others stayed their paths crossed
at the Post of Arkansas.

Indians, Europeans and Americans all
walked here. Explorers and soldiers,
priests and outlaws, traders and trappers
- they came as wayfarers or as new
colonists seeking new homes and lives.
