Arkansas lists 100-year-old businesses but doesn't mention old farms and plantations or orchards or sale barns

Please click on images to Enlarge view of some remnants of Fayetteville history and agricultural heritage that many believe must be maintained if local food production is to continue. The sale barn was built by the current owner's grandfather, I believe, more than 70 years ago.
The top photo shows a promotional handout from the Sale Barn Cafe, which is open from 11 a..m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday and from 6 a.m. until activity at the sale barn wanes in the evening.

The second photo shows the view of the sale barn from the adjacent Fayetteville Naional Cemetery. To the northeast (left side of photo) the southwest slope of Mount Sequoyah is visible.

The third photo (below) shows the view from the cemetery to the northeast with down Fayetteville in the background and the Farmer's Co-Op a few blocks away.
