Stop by the society office at 936 Washington Street, Wednesday - Friday, 9:00 - 4:00 to greet our Museum Manager, Becky Davis.

With the Civil War Sesquicentennial activities behind us, we now look forward to developing Ft. Lookout as a museum and interpretive center for the events that occurred in Ouachita County in the spring of 1864. Forts Lookout and Southerland, also known as Redoubts A and B, were important position points for defense along the river during the Civil War.
