Additional Event Details

Named after the calico-colored bluffs on the north side of the White River, Calico Rock initially developed as a popular steamboat landing. Construction of the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern Railroad through Calico Rock began in 1902, and the town was incorporated in 1905. The local economy consisted of small cotton and livestock farms and timber-related industries. Downtown Calico Rock boasts many distinctive rough-cut stone commercial buildings. Today, Calico Rock is predominantly a destination for tourists and retirees with its close proximity to the White River, Norfork Lake, Blanchard Springs Caverns and the Buffalo National River. The tour group will meet at the Calico Rock Museum at 104 Main St. Co-sponsored by the Calico Rock Museum.
