The Memphis to Little Rock Road Segment - Henard Cemetery Road is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A with National significance by virtue of its status as one of the few intact surviving segments of the roads traversed by the Bell Detachment during the Cherokee Removal. Its association with the earlier Choctaw, Creek and Chickasaw Removals augments its importance, as does its role in the opening of eastern Arkansas as a means of westward emigration. - NRHP
