SCENICATTRACTIONS Just a few Scenic Attractions to be discovered in Mena/Polk County Be sure to bring along your camera. You will not want to miss these amazing beautiful photo opportunities! The 1.8 million acres of the Ouachita National Forest and surrounding area comes alive with brilliant vivid color in the fall months. Oranges, reds, yellows and greens dot the landscape with vibrant color. A relaxing drive just about anywhere in Mena/Polk County will energize your visual senses with spectacular sights of the rolling hills and deep valleys of color. A popular way to enjoy the fall colors is to take a leisurely drive or motorcycle ride along the Talimena National Scenic Byway, or hike the many Ouachita trails throughout the Cossatot River State Park or Queen Wilhelmena State Park. Whichever you choose, you will enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery the Ouachitas have to offer, be sure to bring your camera. Knowing when the peak color will occur is challenging, but here is what we do know: the majority of the hardwoods will peak, depending on weather, anywhere between the last two weeks of October and the first two weeks of November. The state website www.Arkansas.com, with the help of their color spotters, provides visitors with a weekly fall color update beginning in late September.

Historic Mena KCS Depot Center Located at 524 Sherwood Avenue in the heart of downtown Mena, Arkansas, the KCS Depot is rich with deep history of Mena and Polk County. Built in 1896, the restored station houses historical displays, railroad memorabilia and “A Ouachita Portrait� exhibited collection of drawings from local Monta Black Philpot.

A LITTLEABOUT POLK COUNTY Polk County, Arkansas was organized in 1844, making it the 48th county in Arkansas. The county is located in western central Arkansas with a current population of just over 20,000. Polk County was named for the new president of the United States, President James Knox Polk. The county has a total area of 862 square miles, with long, narrow ridges of folded rock, large fertile valleys and mountains covered with oak and pine trees make up the landscape of the county. Nearly half of Polk County lies in the Ouachita National Forest. Rich Mountain, the county’s most prominent landmark, has a peak of 2, 861 feet, and contains, in a single square mile, more species of wild plants, flowers, and weeds in their natural state than can be found anywhere else in the word on a similar track of land. Many creeks and rivers are scattered through the county including Lake Wilhelmina, the Cossatot River and the Ouachita River. With 28 locations listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Polk County is rich with history. The City of Mena is the county seat, where you will find the Historical Polk County Court House and the Polk County Library along with other county services. Mena is a gateway to some of the most visited tourist attractions in Arkansas. An estimated 1.2 million visitors each year come to Mena and Polk County to enjoy its nearby natural features. • Acorn • • • • • • • • • •

The Heartbeat of Our Community


EMERGENCY SERVICE Ambulance – Fire – Police – Sheriff: 911

Being active in the local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy. It communicates to consumers that a company uses good practices, is reputable, cares about its customers, and is involved in its community. According to a recent study by The Schapiro Group: When consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 49% more likely to think favorably of it and 80% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future. If a company shows that it is highly involved in its local chamber (e.g. sits on the chamber board), consumers are 10% more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition. When a consumer thinks more favorably of a company because the company is highly involved in its local chamber of commerce, it is because he or she infers that the company is trustworthy and cares about its customers. The positive impacts of chamber membership have remained the same and even increased over time. Now that you know all the benefits of being part of the largest business organization in the Mena/Polk County area, “Put the office to work for you!” - Stop by and join the membership, we will be excited to have you!
