About Fort Smith

Fort Smith is a city located in western Arkansas, along the Arkansas-Oklahoma border. It is the second-largest city in the state, with a population of over 87,000 residents. The city has a rich history, dating back to its establishment as a military post in 1817. It played a significant role in the expansion of the United States into the western frontier, serving as a supply base for expeditions and as a hub for trade and transportation.

One of the key factors that contributed to the growth of Fort Smith as a transportation hub was its strategic location along the Arkansas River. The river served as a major artery for freight transportation, allowing goods to be transported to and from the city. In the 19th century, steamboats were a common sight along the river, carrying goods such as cotton, timber, and agricultural products. The arrival of the railroad in the late 1800s further enhanced Fort Smith's transportation capabilities, connecting the city to other major markets and facilitating the movement of goods throughout the region.
