Briars had a post office from 1892 to 1923.
Briars was located on a stretch of the river called "Deer Park Bend". In 1933, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed the "Glasscock Cutoff", which removed Briers from the contiguous flow of the Mississippi River.
All that remains at the hamlet's former location is an abandoned landing strip for light aircraft.
