|Today, we took a little day trip to Arkansas! We had a picnic and did some exploring. This first barn was way out in the hills in a super remote location. I think it is SO pretty!|
We made an unexpected discovery! We ran in to Dogpatch USA!(I had to google, to identify what it was.)
From Wikipedia: Dogpatch USA is an abandoned theme park located on State Highway 7between the cities of Harrison and Jasper in Arkansas, USA, an area known today as Marble Falls. It was opened in 1968, and was based on the comic strip Li'l Abner, created by cartoonist Al Capp and set in a fictional village calledDogpatch.
Dogpatch USA was a commercial success in its early years. Investors tried to parlay that success into a sister park, "Marble Falls", planned with a ski resortand convention center. The venture failed and led to the park's closure in 1993. The property has since fallen into disrepair.I found out that a person was injured while trespassing many years ago. They sued, and were awarded the park. So sad, I wish they could fix it back up!
