Miss Laura's Visitors Center is a good place to begin your visit to Fort Smith, AR. We were greeted by a charming hostess, who gave us a tour of the building and a little back ground history about the old downtown area. It's a neat piece of history. You can pick up brochures and get information about attractions in Fort... More

So it was mainly to satisfy my curiosity, as our first stop in this funny little town of Fort Smith. The house, beautiful, rich with history and a knowledgable guide who handed us several brochures on the town, and me, a clean bill of health. Did you know ladies of the evening had to get themselves checked out monthly? I... More

My husband and I weren’t really sure what to do in Fort Smith, so we decided to start by visiting Miss Laura’s house since it is also the Fort Smith visitor’s center. We were greeted at the door by a very nice tour guide that took us on a free tour of the old Victorian home, and told us several... More

Miss Laura's Social Club, a former bordello, is now the welcome center in Fort Smith. It is a Victorian home that was moved to its current location near the river and restored to tell a bit of the history of Arkansas, and Fort Smith in particular. A guide greets you as you enter and takes you through the entire building... More

My sister and I were really just stopping in to get information on where the national cemetery was located. I'm glad we stopped by. It was fun and entertaining to learn about the brothel. The tour only took about 15 minutes so if you are in the neighborhood, stop by! You'll be glad you did. It's free but you can... More

We arrived in Fort Smith late in the afternoon and decided to go to the visitor center. We walked in expecting to get information on Fort Smith and instead found ourselves being lead on a tour of this once red district house! The tour was very reveling and interesting to say the least. You can get the info you want... More
