Summer Travel: Shiloh Museum of Ozark History, Springdale
In observance of the 50th anniversary of the Buffalo River’s national status, the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History in Springdale, presents Ken Smith’s Buffalo River Country through December 31, 2022.
The exhibit showcases the beauty of the Buffalo National River and the work of those who advocated for its preservation and exploration. Ken Smith’s 1967 book, The Buffalo River Country, published by The Ozark Society, featured his photographs, maps and travel narratives that aided the society’s mission to get the Buffalo national river status.
Ken Smith’s Buffalo River Country includes Smith’s personal items, tools, a 12-minute video and 22 photos from his 1965 exploration of the river’s watershed.
The Shiloh Museum will offer several related events in celebration of the river’s anniversary in conjunction with the University of Arkansas Humanities Center and University of Arkansas Libraries.
