Phillips County, Arkansas is situated in what was once one of the most prosperous parts of the nation - the Arkansas Delta. Agriculture drove the area's success, but mechanized farming techniques eventually made many jobs obsolete. Over time, communities withered as workers left for urban areas in search of work. Today the Delta is still dominated by agriculture but with much fewer workers needed to grow crops, jobs are a scarce commodity.
