A new world-class museum will be opening in NW Arkansas, of all places! All of that money from the Walton family (ever heard of Walmart?) has certainly benefited this part of the country. Check out this link:

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art:

We've been watching the construction of this place..... pretty impressive to say the least. Opening November 11, 2011. I look forward to seeing it up close. It is expected that it will attract people from all over.

It is nice to see the Walton family putting some of their riches back in to the U.S. especially with all of the foreign products that they sell. A little ironic I guess LOL.

On a serious note, it does look like it is going to be a terrific place to visit. Might have to make it out that way sometime.

I agree whole-heartedly. It's hard to find stuff that's made in the U.S.A., and not just at Walmart. Sad state of affairs, if you ask me.

I spent some time in that corner of Arkansas at the Peterson poultry facility. Decatur AR. is basically owned by Mr. Peterson, the bank, the grocery store, the gas station just about everything. I even met Mr. Peterson who of course insisted that i cal him Loyd. Very nice man, people and Town.

I go through there every once in awhile. Just west of here 10-15 miles. The lady's yard that we mowed this evening is originally from Decatur. Like you said, nice folks there.
