Graysonia Mill Pond Tract Clark County
The Graysonia Mill Pond tract is a piece of Arkansas timber history as well as an outstanding timber/recreational/hunting property. The tract is the site of the original company town of Graysonia along with the sawmill owned by the Ozan-Graysoina Lumber Company. The sawmill, at its heyday during World War I, produced over 150,000 board feet of southern yellow pine lumber and the town supported over 1,000 inhabitants. Several hundred homes, a restaurant, several cafes, three hotels and a large sawmill complex dotted the one square mile which made up Graysonia. The Memphis Dallas and Gulf railroad traversed the mountains and eased along the bluffs overlooking the Antoine River. The original rail bed is still usable and provides access through the western portion of the tract providing a sienic atv ride. The mature natural stands of pine, white oak and red oak along with the plantation pines provide a mosaic of wildlife habitat and hunting opportunities rarely found anymore. Whitetail deer, turkey, hog and bear roam freely up and down the river banks, hide out in the thick cover of the planted pines and get fat on the abundant browse and mast available through out the property. The road and trail system will provide hour upon hour of riding fun for the atv enthusiast. The river is easily accessible via 2 different river bank roads. Both of these sites have adequate flat ground adjacent to the river for camp sites. The gated entrances provide security and privacy. The old fire tower location would be an excellent site for a cabin providing vistas reaching miles in the distance. Give me a call today for more information or to set a time for a tour.
