I finally stopped by our local Historical Museum along Highway 71.
What a delightful surprise! There was so much history to see and read here. It was extremely well organized by the different periods of development.
One of the accounts, I loved reading about was concerning the writers from here. There was even an official Poet Laureate of Bella Vista.
I plan on researching these ~ my photos are from their displays. If you haven’t made time to visit yet, you surely are missing a great opportunity to see why Bella Vista is a shared treasure!
