The post office was established December 21, 1892, and was discontinued March 31, 1904.
The nearby Little Walnut River Pratt Truss Bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places. According to the National Register of Historic Places registration form, the bridge crosses Little Walnut Creek, one mile below where Hickory Creek flows into it. This is on SW 157th Terrace between SW Commanche Road and SW Purity Springs Road. The remains of a grist mill can be found upstream.
The name and spelling of the town was eventually corrupted to Boder. Later, the spelling of the town name changed to "Bodarc" reflecting its present-day pronunciation.
Remaining structures in Bois d'Arc comprise the former post office, a farmhouse, the bridge, and the ruins of the grist mill.
The community is served by Bluestem USD 205 public school district.
