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 is a beautiful place, especially in spring, where you see the way things used to be while enjoying the kindness of the South.
