In 1886, R.E.L. Wilson founded Lee Wilson & Company. Over the course of the next century, the company became a fixture in the lives of people in southern Mississippi County. The generations of Wilsons that followed "Boss Lee" made the company an important contributor to the development of agriculture, industry, and education in the Arkansas Delta. This online exhibit illustrates the role of Lee Wilson & Company in the transformation of the Delta--one of America's most precious natural resources.
