1955 Mountain Meadows Massacre Monument in Harrison, Arkansas

In September 1955, an historic monument was
erected in the town square of Harrison, Arkansas
to commemorate the local families who died.

 John Kenner Fancher, Sr. was responsible for the
           planning of this monument in Harrison, Arkansas,
 for The Richard Fancher Society of America.
It was dedicated on September 4, 1955.
The monument reflected the best information available
in 1955, but the information is not entirely accurate.
