If you like history you'll love this place.
AWESOME ARKANSAS HISTORY~ My dad started taking me & my cousins there as children, I am now 42 years old & I've taken nieces, nephews, lots of friends over the years & now my husband & I take our son there; he is 6 years old & we are going to start this year taking our nieces & nephews there. Be sure to see it all, the part at the beginning of the road & then the post at the end of the road. My dad worked construction & lived in the area for many many years & would donate artifacts as he found them in the area. Great place to go spend some time & have a picnic. They have a video at the visitors center at the post, only takes a few minutes. I personally like the original one from when I was younger & it was replaced probably 17 + years ago, this one is good too but I personally like the one I grew up on ha ha, nostalgia. Go~Enjoy~Have Fun~Learn~ Experience~Arkansas' first capital!
Absolutely gorgeous, but not a lot there to see. Liked it, but wouldn't make a second trip.
