Shiloh Museum of Ozark History
Springdale, Arkansas

In observance of the 50th anniversary of the Buffalo River’s national status, the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History in Springdale, Arkansas, presents the photo exhibit, “Ken Smith’s Buffalo River Country,” which celebrates the work of those who were inspired by the scenic Arkansas Ozarks waterway.

In his 1967 book, “The Buffalo River Country,” Smith brought awareness to the watershed. Published by The Ozark Society, Smith’s photographs, maps, and travel narratives played a role in the society’s mission to get the Buffalo designated a national river, the first to be granted the distinction.
