West Fork, nestled in the Ozark Mountains, is ten miles south of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, Arkansas, and a half-hour drive to the home offices of Wal-Mart and Tyson. West Fork is nearby to popular destinations such as the Crystal Bridges Museum, Beaver Lake, Devil's Den State Park with hiking and biking trails, and the War Eagle Mill Arts and Crafts Fair. West Fork was founded in the 1880s on the banks of the West Fork of the White River. Founded by the timber industry, milling, and railroad commerce, our historic homes, parks, library, Farmers Market and community events preserve a small town feel in an area of rapid growth with a diverse and an expanding economy. Our beautiful Ozark Mountain scenery, mild four seasons, one of the best school districts in Arkansas, and opportunities for employment, recreation and higher education, make West Fork "Where the Best Begins".
“Snowball”By Shel SilversteinI made myself a snowball,As perfect as could be,I thought I’d keep it as a pet,And let it sleep with me.I made it some pajamas,And a pillow for its head,Then last night it ran away,But first – it wet the bed.
Charles Dickens, The Pickwick PapersHappy, happy Christmas,that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth;that can transport the sailor and the traveler, thousands of miles away,back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!
