Van Buren Walking Tour Journey

Crawford County Bank Building

Van Buren, Arkansas 72956, United States

Created By: Van Buren


First class appointments, like marble mantles and lavatories, waterworks and electric lights were the marvel of Van Buren’s first bank, built in 1889. Maybe such plush surroundings are why the ghost of the bank’s first President is rumored to still share the second floor with the present owner. And he might not be the only spirit haunting this building -- in the twenties, when the third floor was a dance hall, an angry husband caught his wife with her lover and gunned him down.
