Washington, Arkansas, 10 mi/16 km north of Hope, is the home of the Old Washington Historic State Park.

Washington contains several restored buildings, including the building that was the state Confederate Capitol during the Civil War, the blacksmith shop where the first bowie knife was reportedly made, and a tavern similar to one that Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie stopped in while making their fateful trip to Texas and the Alamo.
