Inscription.  
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.
 
Erected by National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
