Welcome to PB Junction!

Welcome to PB Junction, a hub for current and historical information on Pine Bluff, Arkansas.  Over the last few years, Pine Bluff has undergone notable changes, including a Main Street downfall (literally, to some extent), followed by a determination to rebuild.  I couldn’t help but to wonder what led to the demise and what the new plans were, as this was my hometown for most of my childhood.  While news articles were helpful in describing the recent downfall, I found key information on revitalizing and rebuilding came only after multiple, varied iterations of searches.  So I decided to create a site that connects the pieces of information I found.

In the future, I hope the site adds a forum for community discussion; until it does, I hope you will share your thoughts by emailing the administrator (adminkc@pbjunction.com) or adding comments to articles.


Here’s a shout-out to the Pine Bluff Commercial for their coverage of the events described above.  Had I fine-tuned my internet searches, I would have found more pertinent information sooner in the many Pine Bluff Commercial articles on the topic.  I’m still glad to provide this website as a hub of for pieces of information on a few concentrated topics.
