Norman C. McLeod was the owner of Happy Hollow (a.k.a. McLeod’s Amusement Park), a popular tourist attraction in Hot Springs (Garland County) from the 1880s through the 1940s. It was perhaps best known for its humorous photographs, for which visitors could pose in an old bathtub, on the back of a burro, or having a drink at the bar. Such establishments contributed to Arkansas’s hillbilly image.
