Trail of Tears, day four

June 30, 2009 Posted to: MB Trail of Tears

Baba’s party left Waynesboro and headed west through Tennessee and into Arkansas. about 3/4 of the way across that state, they spent the night at the Pond Creek Motor Lodge outside of Altus OK. The building(s) no longer exist but they were located on old highway 64 (now known as Pond Creek Road). The site is occupied now by a electric cable installation company.

Altus and it’s neighbor Ozark are Arkansas’ “Wine Country” now and in general, the area looks prosperous. Pond Creek Road however has seen better times for sure.
