Park's Station
Arkansas 265, south of Hogeye




Park's Station for the Butterfield Stage was operated by John P A Parks and his wife Mary who were substantial landowners in the area. Parks is buried in the family cemetery just north of the station site.

At Park's Station, heading South, mules were used to pull the coaches over what was considered to be the most rugged and harrowing mountain stretch on the entire Butterfield route.
