From 1804 to 1805 William Dunbar and George Hunter explored and documented the Ouachita River, known as the Dunbar-Hunter Expedition. The duo explored the river from the confluence of the Ouachita, Black and Mississippi rivers to the hot springs of Arkansas, which are located in what’s known today as Hot Springs.
On Friday, September 13, 2019, the Hot Spring County Historical Society will host a Keelboat display on the Ouachita River at the Tanner Street Bridge from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The display is offered to the public, however it is primarily offered to local students that have classes focusing on Arkansas History. The HSCHS is excited about the event and hopes to offer these types of displays in the future.
