In the heart of the swamp

June 26 - July 2, 2017

Billy Roehrenbeck and Jeff McKay (background facing camera) of Pulaski County Title, are surrounded by a group from the land title industry they led on an excursion to the Louisiana Purchase State Park on June 9. The park is a National Historic Landmark that interprets the point from which land surveys of the Louisiana Purchase Territory began in 1815. Located at the intersection of Lee, Monroe and Phillips Counties, the park protects 37.5 acres of headwater swamp that represents a fast-disappearing ecological setting in eastern Arkansas. A 950-foot boardwalk leads to the granite monument in the swamp’s interior, which marks the initial point for the survey of the Louisiana Purchase Territory. (Photo by Jay Edwards)
