Drennen-Scott House

John Drennen was one of the founders of Van Buren, Arkansas, which neighbors Fort Smith. Drennen played an important role as an Indian agent of the western frontier and oversaw the eligibility process for settlement payments for Cherokees who were relocated to Indian Territory. In 1838, he built his home overlooking the Arkansas River, and it now serves as a history museum under the leadership of the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith.
