1. West Helena, Arkansas Marker
Inscription. The City of West Helena was a vision in the early nineteen hundreds of Edward Chaffin Hornor and John Sidney Hornor, cousins. Their plans for the creation of West Helena on the western slope of Crowley's ridge was accomplished with the filing on June 20, 1910 of a deed of dedication and plat.

Their foresight in planning the city provided for residential, commercial and industrial areas. The lot sizes and street widths meet the standards of today's planners. Water and sewer facilities were built and an electric rail street car system was constructed to provide transportation service between Helena and West Helena.
