Cadron Settlement was the first permanent white settlement in central Arkansas. Located on the banks of the Arkansas River west of Conway, it was a French trading post and part of the Cherokee Trail of Tears. Northeast of Mount Ida --the Quartz Crystal Capital of the World, is the Sweet Surrender Crystal Mine – one of several mines in the area, where digging for quartz is a rock hound's paradise.
