We await your visit to the Clayton House, one of Fort Smith’s preserved relics with a rich guided tour that has helped make this city the “Number One True Western Town.” Fort Smith made the list by True West Magazine for both 2013 and 2014.
Our staff provides tours of the authentically restored circa 1882 Clayton House every hour upon opening, up to the hour preceding closing time. The tour cost (always free to members of the Fort Smith Heritage Foundation) is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors 65 and above; $3 for ages 6-17, and free for children under 6.
Through this tour of the grand Victorian home and grounds, you’ll learn the story of the true-grit effort to bring peace and justice to Indian Territory, see a full collection of 19th century furnishings, and get a feel for the grace of Victorian life in Fort Smith.
Directions: From Garrison Avenue in downtown Fort Smith, go north on 6th Street five blocks. The Clayton House stands at the southeast corner of 6th and “F”. Parking along 6th Street is perfectly acceptable; limited and handicap parking can be found in the back of the museum.
