Tribute to Charles Summerford

Charles Summerford, a local civil engineer passed away after a long illness this year on December 4th. Charles was probably more responsible for the progressive development of our area of Arkansas than since the pioneer settler, Jacob Barkman, brought much needed supplies to Arkadelphia from New Orleans aboard the his vessel the “ The Dime”, the first steamboat to navigate the Ouachita River.
