My family spent Christmas in a cabin on Sylamore Creek and decided to get out to get a few shots of the remaining buildings at Sylamore. Pictured is the Sylamore Depot (actually on the National Register of Historic Places), an old house, the old Williamson's General Merchandise Store, and the old petroleum warehouse. I added a shot of the suspension bridge across Sylamore Creek.
According to Karr Shannon in A History of Izard County, Sylamore Creek was named after Chief Sylamore, an old Indian horse-thief who was shot by the early white settlers he harassed falling near the mouth of the creek and dying. The first post-office was established on the Stone County side of the river in 1851 under postmaster Tobias S. Rudolph. Later, in 1905, another post-office was established across the river in Izard County and was named "East Sylamore". After the office in Stone County was discontinued, it was renamed "Sylamore" in 1930.
