Description

This is a black and white postcard depicting a scene looking down upon the tops of low clouds from the top of Mount Nebo, with trees, bushes, and a seated man silhouetted in the foreground.

Biographical/Historical Note

During the 1890s, a resort hotel was built on top of Mount Nebo near Dardanelle, Arkansas, to house steamboat passengers on the Arkansas River. These summertime visitors enjoyed the mountain's cooler temperatures, lush vegetation, abundant wildlife and breathtaking scenery. In 1927, Mount Nebo was designated as a state park. The majority of the trails, cabins, bridges and pavilions at the park were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
