We've had the privilege to meet Newt Lale~ potter extraordinaire of Osage Arkansas.
He's a vendor at War Eagle Fair as well, Pete and the other gentlemen spend hours visiting, sharing story's, laughing alot~!
We visited his store on our way home~ being the history buff I enjoyed every minute in his shop, full of eye candy and history.
Check out his shop if you are near Branson Missouri or Eureka Springs Arkansas he's just a tad south~

The house and barn on the original War Eagle site.
The War Eagle craft show began in 1954 with local artists only then added the states that bordered Arkansas, today they come from all over the United States. Four large tents are erected along with a barn to house the artists~ Concessions with homemade food abound. The middle picture is " Sherman " he pulls our cargo trailer, he loves to hang out along the fence in the shade.
Huge tents filled with artists from around the country

Vendors tents along the war eagle river
The war eagle mill was constructed in 1830 by Sylvanus Blackburn~ flood washed it away and it was rebuilt. The Union and Confederate Army's used this during the early years of the civil war--it was burned during the end of the war and not replaced until 1873. Today's structure is a reproduction of the 3rd mill constructed in 1973.
It's an active mill grinding mill today, you can purchase items from there gift shops or dine upstairs on the 3rd floor~ Another step back in history moment as you walk inside the mill.
War Eagle Mill and Wooden Bridge
War Eagle Mill
Peaceful and serene river~ simple beauty.
Peaceful and serene is how to describe the war eagle area, love walking along the river or standing on the one lane wooden bridge gazing at the geese-ducks or children playing in the water, fishing too~! A step back in time when life was simple.

Looking down over the War Eagle River from the road~ awesome~!
Love traveling the road to War Eagle Arkansas~ a fascinating and nostalgic historic site nestled in the rolling Ozark hills of NW Arkansas. Home of the Mill a most picturesque place in the natural state.
Fall is beautiful in Arkansas~ Love doing the craft show at War Eagle a working mini vacation for us.
In the splendor of Autumn...
Warm days, cool nights, colorful scenery- that's typical of War Eagle in October. Famous fried chicken or barbeque dinners eaten picnic-style along a mill pond reflecting the flamming fall revue and azure sky; that's the stuff of which memories are made.
