Since the weather was very rainy, we drove through another historical town called Van Buren. It is very well restored. Then we went ahead and drove over to the Fort Smith location in the pouring rain. We ended up in a TERRIFIC museum! There is lots of history connected with this area, and the "hanging judge" Judge Parker. This area is the back drop for the movie True Grit.
