May 8, 1912
The town of Delaplaine (Greene County) was incorporated. Delaplaine was formed by the railroad and the lumber industry, but agriculture, hunting, and fishing are the mainstays of the towns economy in the twenty-first century. Delaplaine was a childhood home of Jimmie Lou Fisher, who served twenty-two years as state treasurer of Arkansas, being one of the first women elected to a statewide office in Arkansas. In 2002, she ran for governor but was defeated in a close election by incumbent Mike Huckabee.
