Joe. S. Decker was a Randolph County Judge during the first half of the 20th century, known for his foresight and business acumen. In 1914, he went before the Arkansas Legislature and secured the formation of the first road improvement district in north Arkansas, for the purpose of building a gravel road from Ravenden Springs to Ravenden Junction. In 1940, he appointed a commission to oversee the building of the new, and current, Randolph County Courthouse. His house was said to be the first Colonial home south of the Mason-Dixon line.
