Get those kids out of the house this Spring Break! Powhatan Historic State Park will take your kids through the history of Arkansas and Powhatan with a weeklong schedule of programs and activities. The first day of our Spring Break programming will focus on the prehistory of Northeast Arkansas with a look into the Native Americans that once called this area home.
Schedule of the Day:
