The Southern Arkansas University Research Station of the Arkansas Archeological Survey (AAS-SAU) is located on the SAU campus in Magnolia, Arkansas. The AAS-SAU Research Station is responsible for the archeological resources of 11 counties in southwestern Arkansas. The station territory stretches from the southern edge of the Ouachita Mountains to the Arkansas/Louisiana state Line, and incorporates the Great Bend region of the Red River. The late prehistoric and protohistoric inhabitants within the station territory were members of the Caddoan culture (in the west) and the Plaquemine culture (in the east). Among the important sites in the SAU station territory is Crenshaw, the earliest known Caddoan ceremonial center, and Historic Washington State Park, an antebellum town restored and interpreted by Arkansas State Parks and the Pioneer Washington Restoration Foundation.
