A Journey Through Arkansas: Historic U.S. Highway 67
Bisecting the entire state from northeast to southwest, U.S. Highway 67 has been and continues to be a major route for traffic through Arkansas. Spanning the time period from 1900 to 1960, this book traces the development of the many interesting river and railroad towns that grew up along the highway. U.S. Highway 67 enters from Missouri and exits at Texarkana, crossing such towns as Corning, Walnut Ridge, Newport, Searcy, Beebe, Jacksonville, Little Rock, Malvern, Arkadelphia, Gurdon, Prescott, Emmet, and Hope. Through rare vintage postcards and photographs, this visual tour follows the route, looking at the towns and how they changed with the coming of the highway. Also featured are images of diners, rest stops, and motels along the road, some of which are still standing, while others are now long gone, as the interstate system took away the traffic.
