There’s An Abandoned Arkansas Theater Hiding In Plain Sight And It’s Hauntingly Beautiful
Arkansas has some fantastic hidden gems scattered around the state. Some require obscure directions or a long drive out to the boonies. Others, like this particular place, manage to hide in plain sight right off of Fort Smith’s busiest street. The New Theatre isn’t currently opened to the public but you can join us for a photo tour of this magnificent piece of history.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
