Garland County, Arkansas: Our History and Heritage
(ISBN 978-0-9824534-0-7)

This 700 page volume with a handsome linen hardcover is an indispensable guide to
the people, places, and history of Garland County.

Twenty-one chapters prepared by the Garland County Historical Society cover Garland County's land, settlement, Civil War era, growth, cultural pursuits, transportation, schools, churches, cemeteries, businesses, government, economy, historic sites, civic groups, recreation, health care, townships and communities, and more. From Memdag to Lonsdale, from the Dark Corner to the National Park, from Native Americans moving novaculite to a future U.S. President playing in the HSHS Trojan Band, this book offers the only comprehensive picture of our county ever published.

Hundreds of family histories [click here for the names of some of them] collected by the Melting Pot Genealogical Society give fascinating portraits of the people who have made Garland County their home.
