     The Clark County Historical Association’s archival holdings exist as the largest and most significant collection of Clark County research resources available anywhere. Through the years CCHA volunteers have worked tirelessly to organize, preserve, and index the materials. Clark County is recognized in history and genealogical circles for offering outstanding access to its records. Housed at the Ouachita Baptist University Library for more than four decades, the archives include hundreds of cubic feet of historical materials such as personal papers, business records, organizational records, church documents, genealogical research resources, county/local government records, photographs, newspapers, maps, and books.
