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.

Went on a cloudy Saturday. Great little place. Everyone was nice and helpful. Kids had a blast. Will go again.

Great Arkansas State Park. You can spend days here or stop in to eat. A easy place to get in with a RV, to walk the dogs or stretch your legs. Many buildings to tour and opportunity to sit in the old south court room.

Great historical town with paid guided tours and self tours for free. Different activities available every day of the week. Stop by the candle shop to color your own candle for free. Great history of Arkansas and the South. See how they made houses without nails or screws and plenty more. Just 8 miles out of Hope, AR.
