Fort Smith National Historic Site

Fort Smith, Arkansas

Fort Smith National Historic Site

Located in both Oklahoma and Arkansas, Fort Smith National Historic Site preserves 80 years of history on the Arkansas River.

Settled from 1817 to 1896, the park traces the life of Fort Smith and its stories cover life on the edge of Indian Territory and its encounters with Native Americans and the Trail of Tears throughout the years.

Visitors can explore the park's grounds, which include former barracks, a courthouse and a jail. Numerous exhibits inside detail the history of the military, Judge Parker, and the Trail of Tears events that occurred here.

Outside, visit the site of the first fort, the Trail of Tears overlook on the Arkansas River, the Commissary Building, and reconstructed gallows. The park is located near Poteau in southern Oklahoma.
