Gaskins Switch, AR - Carroll County
Gaskins Switch was named for John Gaskins, the renowned bear hunter of Carroll County. Gaskins' settlement was located on a creek about 3 miles from Eureka Springs. He built a cabin there in 1864, in which he and his wife raised their 11 children. When the railroad arrived in Carroll County, the area would also be known as "Junction".
The historic 1864 Gaskins home has been converted into the Gaskins Cabin Restaurant, and the old Gaskins Switch Cemetery is located up the street on the North side of the highway.« Click here for sources
