Ghost Walks at Powhatan Historic State Park

7pm – 10pm

Admission: $2/adult, $1/children 6-12, 5 years & under free


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 21, from 7pm to 10pm.  With admission, $2, $1 for children ages 6-12, 5 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…
