Little-known Arkansas facts

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published December 24, 2012 at 11:21 a.m.

In Tuesday’s Style Helaine R. Williams asks: Did you know that Arkansas has not only a Fouke Monster, but a Heber Springs Water Panther? And that the Tantrabobus is an Ozark nickname for monsters?

And did you know that Toad Suck, the Perry County community, was named earlier this year as having the most unfortunate town name in the United States, thanks to an international poll taken on the website findmypast.com?

See tomorrow’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for these and more little-known Arkansas facts from the new book Forgotten Tales of Arkansas by authors Karen J. Underwood — whose parents’ families have their roots in the Arkansas Delta region — and her “Yankee”-born husband, Edward L. Underwood.
