Lavaca Military Road Museum has Visitors


Twelve ladies from the Welcome Neighbor Club of Greater Fort
Smith toured the Military Road Museum in Lavaca this past Thursday.  According to their webpage, “Welcome Neighbor
Club is a non-profit group of ladies who enjoy having a good time. Bowling, book club, bunco, brunches,
golf, and just plain friendships!!! And an annual Christmas charity auction to
feel good about ourselves.”   

The club called several weeks ago requesting a
tour.  The ladies had a good lunch at
Steffey’s Pizza and then made their way to the museum where they were
fascinated by our local history and contributions to the area.  The women had plenty of questions and
reminisced about their younger days as they were reminded by artifacts in the
displays.  Several of the ladies found an
old songbook in our collection and had no problem joining together singing a
song to the rest of us.  The chairperson
of their group called later to express their thanks and telling what a great time
they all had while here.  People are beginning
to pay more attention to Lavaca!

Our museum is open on Saturdays from 9am until
12 noon or by appointment by calling 479-729-2482.  Admission is free.
