River Mile 198

Chickasaws and Quapaws crossed the White River
here to visit, long before the first settlers. First
post office, named Chickasaw Crossing in Feb. 1848,
was soon changed to Augusta. Steamboats
docked here to deliver goods and left with
cotton and timber. In 1864, Union forces aboard
Gunboat No. 30 engaged the Confederates. In
the 1890s, Emerson and John Conner ferried stock
and swimmers across the river. This area, between
Augusta Bend to the south and Eldridge Bend to
the north, is the highest land on the east side
of the river from Batesville to its mouth. From
this prime site rose the City of Augusta.
