Graysonia (Clark County) was one of numerous mill towns that emerged in southern Arkansas during the twentieth century as a result of Arkansas’s growing timber industry. At its peak in the 1920s, Graysonia had one of the largest mills in the South and a thriving community. A part of that community shown in this photograph is the home and guesthouse of principal stockholder William Grayson, the commissary hotel, and the railroad. Few visible remainders of the town exist in the present day.
