Calico Rock was an important river port on the Upper White River as early as the first half of the 1800s.

Calico Rock
Legend says the town was named when an early explorer of the White River Valley saw the beautiful limestone bluff and called it "The Calico Rocks" because it resembled the calico fabric used to make women's dresses.
