Powhatan and Northeast Arkansas have a long, rich history, so it only makes sense that there are probably a few ghosts still wandering around. Century-old buildings, the Black River and old cemeteries play host to a number of Powhatan’s ghost stories, folktales and legends. What makes the rattling in the jail? Who is that you see in the second story window of the courthouse as you drive by at night? Come join Powhatan Historic State Park for a Ghost Walk on Friday, October 22, from 7pm to 10pm. With admission, $2, $1 for children ages 6-12, 6 and under free you are invited to our 5 historic structures to be introduced to the spirits and spine-tingling tales of ghostly happenings. These ghostly tales may very well be hauntingly true, or more likely just flights of fancy. We’ll let you decide…

Ghost Walks at Powhatan Historic State Park
7pm – 10pm
Admission: $2/adult, $1/children 6-12, 6 years & under free

Creating soap is not a difficult process – no more challenging than following a recipe for pastry and turning into a pie. Come join us in learning the art of making soap with the cold-process method. Participants will receive a booklet with soap recipes, several bars of home-made soap, and the knowledge of how to become squeaky clean! The Registration fee of $20 covers the cost of materials. Please bring protective clothing, as some materials used are caustic and can burn. Class size is limited; contact the park to reserve your space.
