Former Dogpatch USA

As we drove down Arkansas Highway 7, south of Harrison recently, we saw the remains of old Dogpatch USA. It was a very popular Theme Park in the 70s and 80s, perhaps. Haven't done my research very well. These are September images.

Nancy took these three photos - first of the sign on the road; then two into the area of the "park":

Wouldn't you love to go exploring in there? Wouldn't this make a great setting for a mystery novel? I wonder who owns it, and what will become of it. Always something more to learn!

Today was another very good day! ;-)
