A new slant on NW Arkansas

This is downtown Bentonville, Arkansas...neat as a pin these days.  And this is the humble 5-and-dime on the town square that spawned Walmart.

We stopped by to check out Crystal Bridges, a museum in the middle of nowhere built with the Walton family fortune.  As you enter you are greeted by a museum employee who asks whether this is your first visit, but the question is clearly: "Have you ever been to art museum before?  Let me go over our Rules..."

Turns out, it's a GREAT museum!

Still, across the street from the original store, 2nd Lieutenant James H. Berry guards the past.
