Chicot Trace Chapter

Fordyce, Arkansas

Chapter History

On December 1, 1979, State Regent Mrs. James H. Stevenson, met at the Dallas County Library
with three members of the Centennial Chapter, one member from Champagnolle Chapter, one from
James Bate Chapter, and several other ladies interested in organizing a DAR chapter at Fordyce.
On April 16, 1980, the group received news from National that the chapter was approved. The
name, "Chicot Trace", was the first choice of the chapter, and was approved. Prior to 1825,
Chicot Trace was the name for the mail route between Point Chicot, a boat landing on the
Mississippi River, and a trading post in Ouachita County known as Ecore a Fabre, now Camden.
