Historic Railroad Map of the Southern States - 1872

Maps showing Arkansas Central, the Helena & Corinth, and the Pine Bluff & Southwestern Railroads, together forming the Texas & Northwestern Railway.

The state of Arkansas was one of several states that was formed after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. In 1804 the territory was divided and in 1819, the Territory of Arkansas was formed. In 1836, the state of Arkansas was admitted to the Union, making it the 25th state.

Van Buren was established along the banks of the Arkansas River as a fueling station for the many steamboats utilizing the river and a landing for ferries. Van Buren was named county seat of Crawford County in 1820 when the county was formed.

This map of the south-central states was published in 1872 by G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co. It shows drainage, cities, towns, counties, and the clearly labeled railroad system of 1872.
