100 Years ago in the Lonoke Weekly Democrat

The Lonoke Democrat, sister newspaper to the Cabot Star-Herald and Carlisle Independent, has been in operation since 1871, first as the Prairie County Democrat at DeValls Bluff and then becoming the Lonoke Democrat when it moved to Lonoke with the formation of Lonoke County in 1873. One hundred years ago the financial status of the county was a monthly feature of the paper - and now reflects a much simpler time.
