Weekend Road Trip: Walnut Ridge

Walnut Ridge is the subject of a feature in the January/February issue of Arkansas Highways, a magazine published by the Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department.

The feature is titled, "Weekend Road Trip: Walnut Ridge." The feature by Editor David Nilles and outstanding photographs are quite enticing. The feature begins, "Two recent ribbon cuttings on highways in Northeast Arkansas were the inspiration for this month's weekend road trip. Ceremonies on U.S. Highway 67 and State Highway 226 got this writer interested in what there is to see and do in the Walnut Ridge area."
