Desha County Attractions

Located at the confluence of the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers, Desha County has some of the richest soil in the region, making it a leading agricultural producer. Quaint buildings at Arkansas City are reminders of the once-thriving steamboat town, which was a regular port of call into the 1930s. The county also has its own “Lost Atlantis,” the former county seat of Napoleon, which is now underwater --- washed into the Mississippi River when the Arkansas River cut through the town.


Plan your visit to Desha County by browsing this listing of things to do and see ... such as the World War II Japanese American Internment Museum.
