Jacksonport State Park
We're still catching up on Arkansas history around here,
and the next installment in our summer field trips was visiting Jacksonport State Park with some friends.
According to the park's website:
We enjoyed learning about newspapers during the Civil War era and soaking up the beautiful old courthouse.
I had no idea that Arkansas produced such a booming button business from freshwater mollusks!
I think everybody's favorite part of the day was meandering along the White River.
The park has a lovely picnic area adjacent to the camping facilities.
We had rock skipping contests,
looked for shells, and enjoyed God's beautiful creation,
especially the sweet friendships He gave us.
