The Spooky Photos Of The Abandoned Hallie’s Zoo In Arkansas Are Nearly Unbearable
Hallie’s Zoo was a beloved Arkansas gem during the 60s and 70s but has completely fallen from memory in the present time. The zoo hasn’t been forgotten by everyone however! Let’s scroll through the empty cages and see what’s become of this buried treasure.
This tour is brought to us by our friends over at AbandonedAR. They travel to forgotten locations all over the state to preserve these places through historic documentation.
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/

Oddly enough this zoo isn’t far from a still-working elephant sanctuary. Who would guess so many wild animals would reside in central Arkansas? You can also see lions, tigers, and bears at this big cat refuge, too.
