Van Buren, Arkansas

July 31, 2012 - Van Buren, Arkansas, United States

 After a good night's sleep we ventured into downtown Van Buren, Arkansas. It is a small city with interesting old buildings that, unfortunately are in various stages of disrepair. We both love old buildings. Although we love the convenience of the interstate highway system, it seems a shame that it (and Walmart) have caused many American small towns, like those where we grew up, to fade away. If one has the opportunity to do so, just take an exit once in a while to be reminded about how things were.
