Mountain View, Arkansas

Mountain View, Arkansas

Mountain View, established in the 1870s, is famous for the preservation of folkways and traditional music. It was natural for the Arkansas Folk Festival to be founded here in 1963, and the Ozark Folk Center State Park followed in 1973. The state's largest craft cooperative, the Arkansas Crafts Guild, is headquartered in the historic downtown area. Antique, craft and music stores abound and accommodations range from camping, bed and breakfast inns to modern motels. Blanchard Springs Caverns, the greatest underground discovery of the last century, offers tours deep within the Ozark National Forest, north of Mountain View. White River, famous for rainbow trout and beautiful scenery, flows nearby. Other attractions include music shows, free music on the downtown square (during warm months) and festive events several weekends of the year.
