More About Arkansas Post
The Arkansas Post (French: Poste de Arkansea) was the first European settlement in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain and present-day Arkansas. Henri de Tonti established it in 1686 as a French trading post on the lower Arkansas River, where the French and Spanish traded with the Quapaw people for years.
They and the Americans, who acquired the territory in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase, considered the site of strategic value. Arkansas Post was the first capital of the Arkansas Territory from 1819 until 1821, when Little Rock was designated as the capital. During the fur trade years, Arkansas Post was protected by a series of forts. The forts and associated settlements were located at three known sites and possibly a fourth. Some of the historic structures have been lost as the waterfront has been subject to erosion and flooding.
The land encompassing the second (and fourth) Arkansas Post site (Red Bluff) was designated as a state park in 1929. In 1960, about 757.51-acre (306.55 ha) of land at the site were protected as the Arkansas Post National Memorial, a National Memorial and National Historic Landmark.
Since the 1950s, three archeological excavations have been conducted at the site. Experts say the most extensive cultural resources at the site are archaeological, both for the 18th and 19th-century European-American settlements, and the earlier Quapaw villages. Due to changes in the river and navigation measures, the water level has risen closer to the height of the bluffs, which used to be well above the river. The site is now considered low-lying. Erosion and construction of dams, canals, and locks on the Arkansas and Mississippi rivers have resulted in the remains of three of the historic forts now being underwater in the river channel.
