“Outdoors & Recreation in Marvell, AR”

The Louisiana Purchase State Park commemorates the initial point from which land surveys of the U.S. territory acquired through the Louisiana Purchase (1803) were surveyed. It encompasses 37.5 acres (15.2 ha) of swampland, a landform which is regionally in decline due to agricultural development practices. In the center is a 6-foot (1.8 m) marker erected on the survey point by the L'Anguille Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, in 1926. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (1972) and designated a National Historic Landmark (1993).

Great stop for history buffs. Who knew most western states were surveyed using this baseline? and that it is in the center of a cypress and water tupelo swamp? It is not far from the highway and worth a brief interlude in a beautiful spot.
