Captain Samuel C. Vance
Our Founder

Plaque Two
In memory of Captain Vance and the pioneer families who endured the hardships of flatboat travel to reach this place in the wilderness.

They lived in log cabins with dirt or puncheon floors, cat-in-clay chimneys, wooden hinged split wood doors, and greased paper windows.

They persevered to give us this historic city.
