Directories

1905 Arkansas Community and Business Directory
Soft Cover, Indexed by Counties
This business and community directory is great for locating those thousands of small communities in the state, many of which no longer exist. For example if your ancestor’s military records say he was from “Walnut, Arkansas”. Today’s atlas list only Walnut Ridge. In 1905, you had Walnutbend in Lee County, Walnut Hill in Lafayette, Walnut Lake in Desha County, Walnut Ridge in Lawrence County and Walnut Tree in Yell County. Many of these communities are as small as three residents.
