"Vacation in lovely Siloam Springs! No Malaria, No Mosquitos, No Negroes!" -advertisement c. 1900 In the 1970s, Siloam Springs had a sign saying "No Niggers or Indians Allowed". Although it now had a college, Siloam Springs had one black family in 1984. The town has since broken and is no longer sundown. The last KKK rally in the town had only one marcher.
