I am a nature lover and self-proclaimed foodie wrapped in one package. In my previous life, I was an Accountant, but numbers were boring and writing is the only thing that fuels my soul. So, I write because it's my freedom...it brings me joy. When I'm not writing dope articles for OnlyInYourState, I am writing and editing articles for my online blog on Medium.com. Or, when I get the chance, I am off on a trip with my family chasing waterfalls, or simply exploring the great outdoors. My mantra is to always find the best part of every day and bask in it.
Paragould Arkansas is nicknamed the “Friendly City,” but you might know it as the home of the scenic Crowley Ridge State Park. The city is dotted with notable landmarks that signify the rich history of the town. You’ll also find the oldest replica of the Statue of Liberty in the heart of the “main street” area. While the statue was erected in 1924, not many people know that it was cast and shipped from Illinois. This iconic landmark in Arkansas serves as a war memorial for the soldiers in the town who fought in WWI.
