Springdale, AR

There are a few things that Springdale, AR is famous for...

  • The starting place of Tyson's Chicken
  • The Northwest Arkansas Naturals
  • The Duggars
Now from this there have been stereotypes linked to the area.

We were the home to "Feather Fest" and festival dedicated to all things chicken. 
Our nickname is Chickendale. 
And of course we are from Arkansas so you get the picture.

This past weekend my best friend came in from South Carolina. She watches the Duggars TV show 18 and Counting on TLC. Now being a fan of the show she wanted to go and find the house and take a picture of it.

Now I am not the stalker type. I don't promote finding people's house and taking pictures. But I couldn't say no for some reason. So we went out and she took pictures as I hid in the car. 

The Duggars are a nice family of very well behaved children. I have been around them several times and they are always polite and respectful. I don't see how you can have 18 children but I struggle with ever facing a future where I'll have 1. 

For those interested I have included 1 picture of the house. 

Springdale, AR and all of Northwest Arkansas is a growing area even through this tough economic times home of Wal-Mart and several other Fortune 500 companies. We are so much more than outside perception gives us credit for. (Sorry, I have a soapbox when it comes to my hometown)
