This May Be The Most Musical Small Town In All Of Arkansas

Most Arkansans think of Eureka Springs when trying to determine the quirkiest town in the state. We like to think of Eureka Springs as Arkansas’ cool artsy aunt but it’s certainly not the only town with some quirk. Up in the northeast corner of the state resides Walnut Ridge. An unexpected visit in the 1960s changed the town into the most musical place in the state. Let’s come together and drive across the universe to Walnut Ridge.
