Mountain Village 1890, a historic re-creation of an Ozark settlement, is a living tribute to the pioneers who first settled in this remote part of the country. These were hardy men and women who followed the trails into our mountains from the Carolinas, Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia. The village is a Bull Shoals, Arkansas attraction that draws families, particularly those interested in history, from across the United States.
Located near Bull Shoals Lake and the White River, whose waters entice trout and bass fishermen nationwide, the village was initially opened in 1960 and, along with Bull Shoals Caverns, is a popular tourist attraction. Besides tourists, the park has been visited by many area children on school trips to see examples of how their ancestors lived not so very long ago.
