What We Do

Preservation Ramble

Preserve Arkansas Rambles are bus trips that explore Arkansas’s heritage sites for an exceptional experience filled with history and fun. Our 2023 Ramble took place in November and transported guests from North Little Rock to Northeast Arkansas, where they enjoyed tours of historic places along the Great River Road from Marion to Blytheville. Stops included the Sultana Disaster Museum at Marion; the historic Greyhound Bus Station, Mississippi County Courthouse – Chickasawba District, and BAFB Exhibition and Alert Facility Site at Blytheville; and the Hampson Archeological Museum State Park and Louis Hotel at Wilson.
