About Sheridan

Sheridan, Arkansas

 

 

 

 

Sheridan is a city and county seat of Grant County, Arkansas. The community is located deep in the forests of the Arkansas Timberlands. It sits near the intersection of US Highway 270 and US Highway 167. Early settlers were drawn to the area by the native timber, which is still a very important part of Sheridan's economy, although the city has diversified into several other industries. Sheridan's history also includes a college, Missionary Baptist College, until its closure in 1934, and a series of civil rights conflicts. Located at the southern end of the Little Rock-North Little Rock-Conway, AR Metropolitan Statistical Area, Sheridan has been experiencing a population boom in recent years, as indicated by a 49% growth in population between the 1990 and 2010 censuses. The population is expected to exceed 5,000 as of 2015

History

Eponym

Sheridan is named after Union general Phillip Sheridan during theReconstruction era.

 

 

Settlement through Gilded Age

The first white settler was Dr. Richard C. Rhodes, a native of North Carolina.

At the beginning of the 20th century, a railroad passed through Sheridan south into Dallas County. The railroad, owned by E. S. McCarty, carried freight and passengers for hire.

From 1917 to 1934, the Missionary Baptist College operated in Sheridan. The College suffered from financial troubles due to the Great Depression. The College provided local residents with courses, not only in theology, but in Latin, Greek, physiology, Ecclesiology, and expression. A 1920 bulletin issued by the College wrote that the goal of the College was "to teach and emphasize the very principles for which the real Baptists of Arkansas stand and for which true Baptists have stood for almost nineteen centuries . . . this is no preacher manufacturing establishment [that] the Lord alone has the prerogative of calling men to preach the gospel." The revamped Missionary Baptist Seminary thereafter opened in Little Rock.

 


Mid-twentieth century

In 1943, Jewell Williams, a Jehovah Witness was convicted in the Mayor's court for selling bibles without a permit under Sheridan City Ord. No. 50. and fined $10, on a trial de novo, he obtained the same result. Williams, joined other members of his faith and appealed similar convictions occurring across the state to the Arkansas Supreme Court in Berry v. City of Hopechallenging the city ordinance as unconstitutional under the First Amendment, the Court agreed and held the ordinances unconstitutional.

The Mighty 1090 KAAY radio station sponsored the Rebel Springs Rock Festival of 1973 five miles east of Sheridan on Highway 270 that included ZZ Top as a headliner. Tickets were $4 before the show and lasted three days, July 4–6, 1973. The National Guard was sent out to maintain "peace." Local property owners attempted to get a court ordered injunction to halt the Festival from talking place, on the legal theory of nuisance, but to no avail.

 

 

 

 

Education

Historic Sheridan Schools Administration Building along US 167.

Sheridan is provided public education from the Sheridan School District, including the Sheridan High School.

Sheridan had a segregated school for African-Americans until the Brown v. Boarddecision. At the time, Sheridan had around 199 African American residents out of the town's total population of 1898. On May 21, 1954 the local school board voted unanimously to integrate its twenty-one African-American students into its high school to avoid the $4,000 it would have cost the school board to send the African American students to Jefferson County. The white parents become extremely upset, and called another vote the next night. At that vote, the board voted unanimously to segregated the local school. Community members in the area, still not happy, petitioned and forced four school board members to step down.

Next, the largest employer of African-Americans in the area offered to move the black families outside of Grant County to Malvern, at the employer's own expense, or burn their houses down. After the departure of the last African-American student from the city limits, the city bulldozed the African-American school; the remnants of the school were buried and the city no longer had a duty to integrate their schools.

In March 2014, Sheridan High School principal Rodney Williams ordered the removal of student profiles from the student yearbook, rather than publish one of an openly gay student. In response, a human rights organization held a rally on the State Capitol steps, and the principal received a petition with 30,000 signatures asking Williams to reverse the decision.
