The original town of Rock Creek had to be moved so the railroad could be built. The trestle at this location was constructed in 1907 by the Gurdon & Fort Smith Railroad, which later became part of the Missouri-Pacific Railroad. Several other railroad companies have also operated this line. In 2011, the current owners, Caddo Valley Railroad, filed for bankruptcy. Railroad soon to disappear into Arkansas history.
