Drive west through downtown Fort Smith, cross the river into Oklahoma, and you’ll find yourself in Sequoyah County. Named after Sequoyah, an American Indian credited with creating the Cherokee syllabary, the county has a rich Native American heritage.
Just across the state line and minutes from Fort Smith is the small town of Roland. The town features a city park, public swimming pool and small lake – and hosts the Iron Mountain Festival each spring. It also has an outstanding school system which serves grades K-12.
A little further west lies Muldrow. Muldrow is near interstate 40 and just 20 miles from Fort Smith. Muldrow City Park features a playground, walking/jogging trail, basketball courts, a volleyball court, and a large covered pavilion – and is the annual host of Old Settler’s Day. Like Roland, Muldrow has its own small school system.
