Miss Laura's Social Club
Our Visitor Center, "Miss Laura's Social Club," is located inside of Fort Smith's historic downtown area and sits alongside the Arkansas River. Out of seven "row houses" that lined Fort Smith's Old West red light district, Miss Laura's is the only house of ill-repute that stood the test of time. Now, it is the only former-bordello on the National Register of Historic Places, and it has been fully restored to its original grandeur. Make Miss Laura's your first stop and we’ll give you a tour of this Victorian mansion that has become a prominent symbol of this once boisterous border town's very colorful past!
Miss Laura’s has served as Fort Smith’s official Visitor Center since 1992. Bring a heart that loves history and let us show you ways to fill it! We’ll provide a guided tour and offer lots of ideas and brochures to help you get the most out of your visit.
