Based in Poteau, Oklahoma, Eric is a historian that is passionate about improving the city he lives in. 

After first moving to Poteau in 2010, he partnered with Mr. Shaw to write The Birth of Poteau.  That 300+ page book was followed up with a partnership with Traci Barnes and The LeFlore County Adventure Guide.

During this time, he began volunteering for the Leflore County Museum, Nashoba Youth Foundation, and various other charities in the area, now including the Salvation Army.  This led to the development of the Poteau Improvement Project.

While gearing up for the project, he was asked to take over the downtown area through Poteau Main Street Matters / Historic Downtown Poteau.  During his time there, downtown saw new streets, sidewalks, an upgraded park, buildings painted, new businesses, and many other improvements. 

Today, those major improvements downtown are complete, so he resumed the formation of the Poteau Improvement Project and has been busy getting that project off the ground.

During that time, he has continued to be focused on historical research and sharing the fascinating history of LeFlore County with others.

This page was set up to help with both projects by raising money for the Poteau Improvement Project as well as to showcase more of the history of LeFlore County.
