Join Judge Isaac C. Parker and his lovely wife (played by Floyd and Sue Robinson) and a variety of re-enactors for a historic downtown stroll at 11:00 am and a children’s scavenger hunt at noon!
Meet historical Fort Smith characters like Reverend Springer, E. B. Bright, Fagan Bourland, Logan Roots, William H. H. Clayton, John Childers (first man hanged on the gallows), Major Duran (killed in a Garrison Avenue gunfight), and Belle Starr (The Bandit Queen).
The Downtown Stroll begins at the Fort Smith Museum of History and visitors are guided on a short walking tour where they’ll learn about historic buildings and meet interesting historical figures.
The Scavenger Hunt will start at noon and will provide a fun history lesson for children; prizes will be awarded.
Both are offered for free with museum admission: $7 adults; $5 veterans and military; $2 children; under age 6 are free.
