Historic Washington State Park
Established in 1973, the state park interprets Washington from 1800-1900. The 1874 Courthouse serves as the park visitor center. Visitors can also see the 1836 Courthouse, Blacksmith Shop, Weapons Museum, several residences and other historic structures on guided tours. Buildings open for touring vary each day. Lunch featuring delicious, Southern country fare is served daily in the 1832 Williams' Tavern Restaurant.
The park also houses the Southwest Arkansas Regional Archives, a resource center for historical and genealogical research.
A lot of history in a small city. The park guides did an outstanding job of explaining the history of the area and specific buildings. The gun museum was incredible. Jonquil & daffodils were everywhere. Check out a piece of Arkansas history.
I loved this place, so much history and there is a lot to see, you just need some time to go to all the places on the maps to see. A good place to see some history but do so with an open mind for the times as they were back then. We loved it.
This place was great. The people so friendly. Very educational.
Great place for a wedding, the flowers are gorgeous and the grounds are well maintained. The staff is friendly specifically Sheila, ask for her and you'll be just fine
This is a beautiful place, especially in spring, where you see the way things used to be while enjoying the kindness of the South.
