The French adventurer La Harpe established a trading post in 1719 on the Red River near what is now Texarkana in Texas, - then he moved on and in 1722 (aged 38) he built a trading post at the Arkansas River near the rock formation that inspired the name of the city (Petite Roche).

Almost one hundred years later Little Rock was surveyed and in 1821 the town became the capital of the Arkansas Territory.
