Luckily for today's visitors, a large chunk of Arkansas timberland, bordering the Ozark and Ouachita National Forests, was deemed too costly for timber harvests in 1921. The Seven Hollows Region was owned by the Fort Smith Lumber Company and the company physician,
Dr. T.W. Hardison, headed up the effort to convey the land for park establishment. Other nearby landowners donated an additional 80 acres surrounding Cedar Falls and Cedar Creek canyonlands.
