A common feature of many Arkansas towns at the turn of the twentieth century was the all-important general store. The town of Beaver (Carroll County) was no exception. Located at the westernmost tip of modern-day Table Rock Lake, where the White River meets the lake, and named after early settler Wilson Beaver, Beaver sports, in this 1930s photograph, a two-story native stone building constructed in 1901 that, at the time, was home to Geo. F. Wilson Genl. Merchandise store, as well as the local post office. The building still stands as of 2006.
