Our tourism association works to help visitors to Randolph County have a great experience here. Through help from the City of Pocahontas, we are able to staff the local visitor center in the beautifully restored Pocahontas Train Depot. While the trains don’t come to Pocahontas anymore, the old depot does have 1 restored red caboose on display, and the Visitor Information Center has lots of information on what to see and do here.
History has a bold, yet charming way of presenting itself to you in Randolph County. The Old Historic Randolph County Courthouse, built in 1872, is in the middle of a charming town square. The courthouse has been restored and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The very first post office for the Arkansas Territory was in Randolph County… and today the site of that building is marked for visitors of the Old Davidsonville State Park. They Maynard Pioneer Museum is a delightful look into the past, to a time when the people of the east ventured with astounding vigor into the unknown, the West!
