Overlooking the Arkansas River, the commanding 1838 Drennen-Scott House Museum, initially the home of the Revolutionary War descendant, John Drennen and his family, is now open to visitors after a $5.5 million restoration and addition of a visitor center. It includes many of the home's original furnishings including a 1764 grandfather clock. It serves as a working laboratory for UA at Fort Smith students as they recreate the century-and-a-half-old home linked to The Trail of Tears, the Underground railroad and the Civil War.
