This map was printed Jan. 18, 1914, in the Fort Smith Times Record as part of a large advertisement for the sale of house lots to take place the next day. "Every lot sold by the Business Men's Club at South Fort Smith will be used to establish new factories," accompanying text said. Already 150 men were employed in factories and businesses in "Southtown." They made "caskets, stoves and wheelbarrows, lawn swings, porch swings, baggage trucks for railroad use, push carts, four-wheeled express wagons, stave mill supplies, stave and beading wagons, frames for camp stools and cots and castings of all kinds including special order work."
