“James Black: Life and Legacy,” a look at the man who forged the so-called Bowie Knife for James Bowie, is on display through Jan. 28 — 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday in the 1874 Courthouse Visitor Center at Historic Washington State Park, off U.S. 278, nine miles north of Hope.
The exhibit includes some knives, originals and reproductions; a Daguerreotype on loan from the Historic Arkansas Museum connected to Black; a fork, said to be made by Black for a local doctor around 1825; and other artifacts. Admission is free. Call (870) 983-2684 or visit HistoricWashingtonStatePark.com. Reach the park by taking Exit 30 off Interstate 30.
I think Mark had something to do with this, but he isn’t in the office to ask today.
