This Weekend in the North Central Ozarks

Kimberly J. Williams
It’s Thursday morning…and not too early to start thinking about the weekend! If you’re looking for something to do, get out and enjoy one of these events being held in the North Central Ozarks this upcoming weekend!
Spend a spooky autumn evening at Powhatan Historic State Park in Powhatan on Oct. 21 for Ghost Walks. Wander around the century-old buildings, the Black River and old cemeteries while you listen to the spine-tingling tales of ghostly happenings throughout the park. Make sure and look for the ghostly figure reported in the historic courthouse’s second story window! Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children ages 6-12. Contact the park at 870-878-6765 to learn more about the event.
Have a frightfully good time in Maynard on Oct. 22 as the town’s Pioneer Museum and Park becomes home to thePioneer Haunted House. Admission is free…if you’re brave enough to venture through the doors! For more details, phone 870-647-2701.

Imagine you’re sick in Arkansas’s territorial days. It wasn’t as easy to get to or see a doctor then as it is now. Learn about some of the practical and sometimes comical frontier medicinal practices when Davidsonville Historic State Park in Pocahontas hosts a Frontier Medicine Workshop on Oct. 23. Participants make their own medicine pouches and take home some natural herbs to “cure what ails them.” Space is limited and reservations are required. Admission is $15. Phone 870-892-4708 to make reservations or ask questions.
Whatever you do, have a great weekend!!
