Long Description:
Text of marker:
Known as "Mouth of Cache" 1799-1837, Clarendon by 1828 had a post office and ferry and was the crossing for the Memphis to Little Rock Military Road. The town became Monroe County seat in 1857 and was incorporated two years later. Destroyed by Union forces in 1864, Clarendon revived to become the site of early factories producing oars, staves and pearl buttons. The town again revived after being engulfed by the 1927 Flood. Simon P. Hughes, Governor of Arkansas 1885-1889 lived here.
Erected by the Clarendon Bicentennial Committee.
