Not overly thrilling, but gives you an idea of Mena’s history. Wish it had a bit more, but worth a quick pop in while you walk through the city. They also have a very friendly cat!

Very nice and historical stop on US 71 in Mena. The old Kansas City Southern depot was been restored and has become a very informative piece of railroad and Mena city history. A nice rest stop/distraction for about an hour of your time. Recommended.
