Most People Have No Idea There’s An Underwater Ghost Town Hiding Here In Arkansas

From 1901 to the mid-1930s, Monte Ne was a planned community featuring a resort. Today, well, it’s a pretty good place to go fishing. The man who was in charge of Monte Ne, former Liberty Party presidential candidate William Hope “Coin” Harvey, apparently wasn’t great at managing coins. The project went bankrupt and was sold off in lots. Many of the structures still standing were flooded when the White River was dammed to create Beaver Lake in 1964.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
