"The Northern Ohio School in Parkin, Arkansas, is determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places with local significance under Criterion A, for its association with African American Education through the first half of the 20th Century. The Northern Ohio School is the only remaining building associated with the Sawdust Hill Community, which was built up around the sawmill located on the St. Francis River in Parkin, Arkansas. The school offers a remarkable contrast to the interpretation of the ""Parkin Phase"" or late Mississippian period, generally conducted by the state park. This contrast shows the multiple periodsof significance that the Parkin Archeological State Park has within its boundaries. "
