Made in USA, this is our outstandingly detailed Map of the Fourche La Fave River a tributary of the Arkansas River in Arkansas!
The origin of the river's name is open to debate; "fourche" is French for "fork," and "La Fave" may be in reference either to a family that once lived along the river or to early settler Peter La Fave!
Early transportation along the river was conducted by keelboat, but even this was challenging, given the numerous shoals along the course of the waterway. On March 3, 1879, congress passed an act to improve the river. This included dynamiting some of the rocky shoals to create a deeper channel for transportation! 🏞👨🌾
