Parker Hickman Farmstead
The oldest historic structure in the park is the Parker Hickman Farmstead. Here youll find a log house, barn, outhouse, and several other structures.
Down the road from the Parker Hickman farm we came to Erbie ford where the Buffalo pours across the road. Thered been heavy rains the week before and we didnt think it wise to risk the foot deep waters so what lies beyond will have to wait for another trip. Some foolhardy individuals truck had been washed into the river at this ford just the day before. A photo of him standing on the vehicles roof graced the front page of the local paper.
The Buffalo National River reminded us of the southern Appalachians in many ways, only minus the crowds. We drove for hours along the backroads and saw hardly another vehicle. If you plan a visit remember this because if your vehicle breaks down it may be a while before help comes. Also be aware that there is private land within the boundaries of the park. Local landowners dont take kindly to nosy tourists destroying their fences or trespassing around their barns so please respect their rights.
