    Old Mormon Church

    Believe it or not, this was the first Mormon church in Fayetteville and was the meeting house for many years (around 8 or 9). Later we met in a funeral parlor on College Avenue, south of Dickson Street. The first meetinghouse constructed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the area is on Zion Road in Fayetteville, across the street from Lake Fayetteville. There is now a stake center in Springdale and new meetinghouses constructed in Prairie Grove and Huntsville.

    Lake Wedington Historical Area

    Lake Wedington visitor center

    Lake Wedington is a wooded retreat about sixteen to twenty miles westward from the midst of Fayetteville. Historic constructions, namely the cabins and the visitor center or lodge, were built in the 1930s under the WPA, and today (sorry zrim) stand on the National Register of Historic Places. This park sits in a grove of hardwood trees and from time to time sees black bear activity. There is good fishing, boating and swimming, as well as volleyball, picnicking and family reunions under the sheltered pavilion.

    Van Buren, Another Blast from the Past

    Crawford County courthouse

    Van Buren lies about forty-five miles south of Fayetteville off I-40. Like any other modern town, the main drags are filled with churches, gas stations, dentists' offices, and the like, but Van Buren also has a finely preserved historic district that runs for several blocks all the way to the courthouse (Van Buren being the county seat of Crawford County). While not as sumptuous as Eureka Springs, there are some B&B's in the historic district that would grace an overnight stay.

    Eureka Springs, a Blast from the Past

    partly the flavor of New Orleans

    Eureka Springs lies roughly sixty miles northeast of Fayetteville. The town will strike the first-time visitor as both one of the best preserved historic towns in the country and a shameless tourist trap of contrived exhibitionism. While both charges are true, there are few other towns like this in America, combining the ambiance of the Old West, the midwestern frontier and the absolute comfort of a bed and breakfast mecca.

    Green , lush, and beautiful is the east lawn of the University of Arkansas campus. Nice place to stroll, study, or far niente.
