Donaghey State Park Monument

Donaghey State Park Monument

The Dual State Monument, also known as the Donaghey Monument, was built in 1931 on the Arkansas-Louisiana state line to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the establishment of the boundary between the two states. It is also a memorial to the birthplace of George Washington Donaghey, governor of Arkansas between 1909 and 1913, who had the memorial constructed and was born about one mile south of the border.

To find the Dual State Monument, take LA Highway 549 north in Union Parish to the Arkansas state line. Turn left on State Line Rd (neither the transition to Arkansas on Hwy 549 or State Line Rd are currently marked with any signs) Travel 1.3 miles and turn right on Monument Rd (also not marked). The monument will be on the right, approximately 100 yards down this road. Both State Line Rd and Monument Rd are gravel roads in good condition as of this time. The GPS coordinates are 33.010692, -92.367496.
