“Old Forester” is the remains of a logging town in the Ouachita National Forest of Arkansas.

In Decline

Detail of an old frame building originally located at Forester, AR – then sold off with the rest of the town in the 1950’s – and finally relocated back to the small park in the Ouachita National Forest that the town has now become. A local woman we once spoke to there said she thought it had been a post office back in the day, and there were plans to try and restore it – but at the risk of a bad pun, I’d say those plans have probably fallen through…

It’s a shame, but I’d say this poor thing is beyond saving by now – the next big storm in the area is likely to knock it over. I have several other photos of this building (in better shape than seen here) –  you can find them with the Forester tag.

Old Forester – New Year

I first visited “Old Forester” on one of the last days of 2013 – and here it is on New Year’s Day of 2017. This is the remains of an old sawmill that was the focus of the long-gone town of Forester, Arkansas. It’s one of those weird places that I feel compelled to return to from time to time, and you can read more about it in my original post or by using the Forester tag.
