Villages of Van Buren

The Villages of Van Buren encompass 12 tiny historic villages, including Bentonsport, Bonaparte, Keosauqua, and Farmington. Take a step back in time to enjoy a leisurely stroll, hit the hiking trails, browse through the many shops, and enjoy historic architecture.

As you drive through the countryside, you will not find a single stop light, or fast food restaurant; “Visitors say life in the Villages moves at a slightly different pace, that friendliness is a virtue among residents and that village heritage is sacred ground.”

During your visit, make sure to have some fudge, check out the local shops, and stay in the Mason House Inn, a famously haunted location.
