Lewisville Arkansas Retrospective

Lewisville Links

Lewisville is located about 20 miles south of Hope, on Arkansas Highway 29, at the junction with US 82, and offers some interesting looks back into the past.

The community was named for Lewis B. Fort, judge, and is located in Lafayette County. The county was formed from Hempstead County on October 15, 1827 and named for the Marquis de Lafayette, a French soldier of the American Revolution. Lewisville became the county seat in 1842.

The Cotton Belt Railroad split from the Dallas to Memphis main line at Lewisville, heading south along Highway 29.

Shown below are a few views of Lewisville that could still be seen early in 2005. The first photograph shows the Peoples Bank and Loan Company, built in 1915, and added in 1996 to the National Register of Historic Places. All photographs are Copyright Ken Freeman, Epagentry.
