About

Prescott is the largest city in Nevada County in southwestern Arkansas. The Prescott area was mainly wilderness in the early 1800s, with a few cotton plantations. It was along the transportation corridor that connected Camden and Washington, Arkansas. This corridor was used for shipping goods and moving people, including Native Americans during Indian Removal. In 1864 there was an important Civil War skirmish nearby at Prairie d'Ane as part of the Camden Expedition.
