Did you know that the land on which Hot Springs Village sits was once known as the "dark corner" because of it's lawless settlers.  The population in the area (known as Marble Township in the late 1800's) was small, and was mostly made up of moonshiners and active members of the Ku Klux Klan.  Other settlers avoided the area because of it's lawless reputation.  Only the very bravest of farmers moved in and developed new communities.

Can you envision an old western movie where the outlaws are drinking and shooting up the saloon in town . . . then riding out to the farms to pillage and plunder?
