Walks Through History: Van Buren (Crawford County)
May 23 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Originally developed as a steamboat landing on the Arkansas River, Van Buren grew quickly with the arrival of railroad lines in the late 19th century. The eight blocks of historic buildings along Van Buren’s Main Street feature many excellent examples of Victorian era buildings including designs in the Queen Ann, Romanesque Revival, and Italianate styles. Tours of the Drennen Scott House will be available after the tour. Meeting place: 11am, Van Buren Visitor’s Center (Old Frisco Depot), 813 Main Street
This event is free and open to the public. Those attending the tours are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, seasonally and weather appropriate clothing, and exercise respect for property owners and pedestrians when parking.
