Arkansas Fort Smith National Historic Site and Clayton House Victorian
Fort Smith, Arkansas, the state’s second largest city, started as a military outpost on the western frontier back in 1817. Join National Park Ranger Cody Faber at Fort Smith National Historic Site and Julie Woods Moncrief at the historic Clayton House.
The Clayton House is a centerpiece of the Belle Grove Historic District--a 22 square-block neighborhood of enchanting Victorian homes in the heart of Fort Smith, Arkansas.
Fort Smith played a key role in western migration, and provided military escorts for Forty Niner gold rush prospectors and pioneer settlers.
