Your Host for Sharp County
Sharp County Trails To The Past is in need of submissions. If you had family in the county we would love to have you submit pictures and family stories. We also need persons with research materials as volunteers to do look-ups for our visitors.
Arkansas Trails has several counties up for adoption. If you would be interested in adopting a county or project look at the Counties List. If you find one that you would like to adopt e-mail the State Administrator.
Trails To The Past has several states and other projects available. To see what states and other projects might be available click the Trails To The Past Logo above.
[ Being a County or State Administrator is fun and rewarding. If you have an interest in the history of Arkansas and the genealogy of it's residents please consider it. If you think "there is no way I can do this" there are many people ready, willing and able to help you. It's not near as difficult as you might think. ]
Ephraim Sharp, for whom Sharp County was named, was an early pioneer in
Arkansas. He also served in the state legislature during the fifteenth and
seventeenth sessions of the Arkansas General Assembly.
