Greene County, Arkansas


The Crowley family settled in 1821 near the present location of Walcott. Since that time there have continued to be industrious, thrifty settlers who have upheld the traditions of their predecessor. Walcott has never been a very large town. In 1910, the Bank of Walcott was established and lasted until 1924.

During the development of Crowley's Ridge State Park, the Civilian Conservation Corps built barracks for the young men who were stationed there. The park opened in 1934, it has brought thousands of visitors.
