Title

INMAN ARCH 1904

Description

On August 14, 1904 a group of young people from Nixa rode in wagons from Nixa southwest to the already famous Inman's Arch. There they had a number of photos taken by a professional photographer working for the Frisco Railroad. These photos were likely then used in Frisco promotional literature, promoting the Ozarks as a great place to live and make money. The photographer was a Mr Hinchey, who had been living in Ozark, but soon made Aurora his home. The Natural Bridge or Natural Arch was often named for pioneer Kentucky native John Inman who settled here before the Civil War.
