A message from your hosts, Joe and Rose Poindexter

Please join us in Hot Springs, Arkansas for the Poindexter Descendants Association’s Poindexter Family Reunion 2012.  Each year Poindexters from all over the United States, and beyond, have traditionally come together to meet and share family history.  Is your last name Poindexter?  Do you have a “Grandma Poindexter” in your family?  Did you marry a Poindexter?  Then you and your family have Poindexter relatives who may share a common ancestor.  Come join your cousins at this year’s reunion…we’ll be glad to see you!

Rose and I have planned a reunion that will welcome you to our home town of Hot Springs.  There’s so much history and beauty surrounding the springs and mountains that we wanted to share our home town with you.

Nestled in the Ouachita Mountains, there is a little valley bordered by three lakes.  In this beautiful valley, hot springs attracted the earliest visitors to the area, including the Caddo Indians. Here the legendary hot springs of steaming waters and mineral deposits drew the rich and famous.  Hernando de Soto was here in 1541. The area became part of the United States in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase.  Hot Springs was devastated by the Civil War, and was burned more than once.  In the 20th century, it became a center for organized crime.  Later, it was a getaway spot for Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Babe Ruth, Rose Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan, to name just a few.

The springs continue to attract people today, but now there are many additional fascinating things to do and see in the area, not the least being the historic Arlington Hotel which has a prominence of its own.  Won’t you come and join us at this year’s Poindexter Family Reunion and add your name to the list?

The Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa was built in 1924.  The graceful old hotel has 481 guest rooms and suites.  When you enter the elegant entrance you are immediately taken back to the Roaring Twenties.  The Arlington has all of the ambiance and hospitality of a traditional, grand old Southern hotel. The Arlington is known for its Thermal Water Spa which allows guests to bathe in the hot spring water that is pumped directly into the hotel. The hotel also has a full service beauty and facial salon, two heated swimming pools, and a larger mountainside heat tub which all add to the charm.  Golfing and tennis are also options.

During the Roaring Twenties, the mob leader, Al Capone rented the entire fourth floor of The Arlington. The Reunion's Poindexter Family Room will be Capone’s own private suite, (no guns please). Today the hotel is walking distance from many attractions and shopping.

Visit each link at left to find out everything you need to know to participate in this year's reunion. Be sure to visit the Hotel Info section to make your room reservations. Registration for the Reunion activities will be open here online in late January and in the January PDA Newsletter. Contact Rose or me if you have any questions.

Your host, Joe and Rose Poindexter
