If you are in the North Little Rock area, the Old Mill is a must see location.The spring and the fall are the very best times to stop in as the flowers and trees around the Old Mill are absolutely amazing.
The architecture of the mill is unlike most unique attractions around the state and the setting is tranquil. The Old Mill will not disappoint the visitors that take time to stop in.

We've stopped here a couple of times, finding different displays each time. The large exhibit of a missle silo launch control room is unique. Next time I hope to get outdoor photos of the aircraft displayed. (a Huey chopper & F-105 jet)

This park on the south side of Jacksonville, AR preserves the battlefield of Reed's Bridge. It was part of the Little Rock Campaign in September 1863 when Union General Frederick Steele forced Confederate General Sterling Price to abandon the Arkansas State Capital and retreat to the southwestern part of Arkansas. There were 11 Confederate States and it is my understanding that Little Rock was the 4th State Capital to fall to the Union Army, Nashville, Tennessee being the first in February, 1862, and Baton Rouge. LA and Jackson, MS were the next two to be occupied. Historical markers describe the battle here. There was a bridge over Bayou Meto, and the Confederate troops burned the bridge to stop the Union army from getting closer to Little Rock. As it turned out, this only delayed the capture for a few weeks. Not all Civil War battlefields have been preserved, and I was pleased that Reed's Bridge had so many historical markers about the event, plus the actual ground along Bayou Meto where the fighting took place is now part of the park. Congratulations to the people who made the effort to preserve this Civil War Battlefield. US 67 is the main freeway through Jacksonville. You need to exit the freeway and go to the downtown area of Jacksonville, which is east of the freeway. Highway 161 will take you south to the battlefield. There are historical markers on both sides of the bridge where Highway 161 crosses Bayou Meto. You can also reach the battlefield by taking the 440 Freeway which connects I -40 with US 67. Take the Highway 161 exit, and head north towards Jacksonville.

This unique structure is one of only two in Sherwood to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The historic building was manufactured in 1936 by Justin Matthews Company for the Pierce Oil Company. Pierce Oil was one of the "baby Standards" formed after the U.S. Government's breakup of John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company in 1911. The recently restored round, turreted building now serves as a Sherwood Police substation.
This old gas station has some very unique architecture. It is currently being refurbished and will be utilized as a substation for the Sherwood, Arkansas Police Department. It is said by some that Elvis and Johnny Cash used to stop here for gas on occasion back in the day before they were famous while they were touring and playing gigs in the area. This is easy to get to from Hwy 167 by traveling a few miles east on Trammel Road.

I took my eight-year-old son out for some trap shooting. The place was clean and very well-kept. One of the gentleman that worked there came by and offered some great advice to my son. The guys name is Gene. I really appreciate the help he offered. We will be back.

Central Arkansas Escape Rooms games are real-life escape games where you and up to 7 others must race to beat the clock and escape from a locked room in one hour or less by solving the mystery in the clues scattered about the room.
We absolutely loved this place. It was really challenging and that's what I love and for being a first timer it was definitely worth the money and the cost was really inexpensive. If you're around the area go see Jeremy and Stephanie they are so...MoreRichard, thank you! We really enjoyed you coming in and having an adventure with us. Y'all were a blast and can't wait to have you back again if you have time before your move. Cheers! Jeremy
