Ozark and Franklin County

This area was first called "Aux Arc" by French Explorers mapping the area due to a bend of the Arkansas River located here. The term was later simplified to Ozark. Ozark is one of two (why two?) county seats for Franklin County. Charleston is the other. Ozark is located on US Highway 64 just east of Fort Smith and has a population of about 4000.

Nice clock tower on the courthouse.

Ozark Historic District

Ozark has a nice little historic district with several buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. There are much more interesting things than the buildings, though, in Ozark.

There was a high profile murder, here. Elizabeth Gracen the former Miss Arkansas connected with former President Bill Clinton is from here. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie were here to film the first season of "The Simple Life". Other notables, like Bugs Bunny, are reported to have vacationed here.

Veterans Memorial

There is a nice memorial to veterans of the countries wars on the courthouse grounds.
