Gravette: The Heart of Hometown America
The City of Gravette has a population of two thousand six hundred, ninety per cent of whom are white and who have at their disposal no less than twenty three churches. Gravette was founded by Ellis Tillman Gravett and his wife Laura on August 9th 1893. Ellis Tillman's family line and my own merge in the early sixteenth century in Steying, Sussex, England. The family link and the unusual demographic of this small community in North West Arkansas caused me to take a closer look at Gravette, its history, its culture and its people. I decided to go to Gravette 'The Heart of Hometown America'.
