Most People Have No Idea There Are Remnants Of A Medieval Fortress Hiding In This Arkansas Forest
The Ozark National Forest has many hidden gems but a 13th-century French castle probably wouldn’t be the first thing that comes to mind. The castle still stands but seems to have been forgotten in the forest. Let’s look at what should have been a popular Arkansas attraction.
Many of these photos are 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!
