I was very impressed in what I found at the Fort Smith National Historic Site. I did not know what to expect for a historic site so close to the local downtown. They have done a great job of telling the story of the fort that stood here and was an important part to the development of the Western Frontier.

The cutaway exhibit of the jail is amazing, it is so well done it will blow your mind. I was also impressed with the historical depiction of the courtroom, you feel like they could be holding court later in the day. The exhibits were also very well done, with lots of information about the fort over time and the outlaws and lawmen that ended up here.

In addition, the gift shop had some great books and a nice selection of souvenirs.

Be sure that you do not miss walking out to the other building, the depiction of the quartermaster is very well done.
