Our autumn trip last year included a visit to Bentonville, Arkansas. Yes, the home of Walmart. It’s actually a very pretty town with a small town feeling and lots of nice, older homes surrounding downtown. Just a block or so from the center square is Compton Gardens and Conference Center. It was originally the home of Dr. Neil Compton, a prominent physician who is credited with saving the Buffalo River, which had been threatened with destruction when the US Army Corps of Engineers renewed plans to build dams on the Buffalo River at Gilbert and Lone Rock. Eventually, it became part of the National Park Service.
After serving in WWII, Dr. Compton returned to his hometown and opened a gynecology and obstetrics practice.
This was very peaceful place to enjoy nature.
