Long Description:
The White River valley must have made excellent farm land and this is where three generations of Nina Wood's ancestors farmed. After construction of the dam, Nina Wood and her husband Forrest owned and operated the state park boat dock and a float trip service. Forrest Wood is better known as the founder of Ranger Boats, the acknowledged forerunner of modern bass boats. More about Forrest Wood can be found in the Encyclopedia of Arkansas. (visit link)
History of Marker:
In 1998 Forrest Wood was appointed to the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission where he served a seven year term, the last year as chairmen. This marker was placed by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, but the year of placement is unknown to me as of now and could very well have been before his appointment.
