This Delightful General Store In Arkansas Will Have You Longing For The Past
Everyone knows and loves the Oark General Store, after all it is the oldest general store in the state. However, we thought today would be a good day to shed some light on one of our other favorites in the state – the Gilbert General Store. Whether you’re planning a Buffalo getaway or just like poking around well preserved Arkansas history, this fantastic general store is well worth a trip.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
