Back in 1866, the city of Arkadelphia embarked upon an unusual enterprise--ownership and supervision of a meat market. The site for the operation was the south side of Clinton Street, at Seventh. The story of this City Market is revealed in the minutes of the Arkadelphia City Council beginning in 1866 into the early 1870s.
