Lumber Derrick and R.I.R.R. Bridge, Devalls Bluff, Ark.
1920 Nov 29
Located in Prairie County along the White River, DeValls Bluff was incorporated in 1866, although Jacob DeVall settled the location around 1850 according to county records. The town currently has a population of about 800 and is located on Highway 70. It is the county seat for the southern district of Prairie County. Excluding Helena (Phillips County), no other town in eastern Arkansas held such strategic importance to the Union army during the Civil War as did DeValls Bluff.
This black and white postcard showing images of a lumber derrick and a railroad bridge at Devalls Bluff, Arkansas, was sent to Eva Bailey from Ted D. Chase, on November 29th, 1920.
