Ouachita County Historical Society's current initiative is the development of Ft. Lookout as a museum and interpretive center for Civil War events that occurred in Ouachita County in the spring of 1864. Forts Lookout and Southerland, also known as Redoubts A and B, were important position points for defense along the river during the Civil War. For more information about this project, contact the society's office at 870-836-9243 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
