The Lure of the Open Road…

The Jacks Fork and the Current River are the heart of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, America’s first river-based national park. The area also is home to the Mark Twain National Forest, which covers 1.5 million acres of wooded hills that glow in autumn colors each fall. Cutting straight through the scenic landscape north to south through Eminence is Highway 19, which was built in the 1930s by laborers using picks, shovels, axes, saws and teams of oxen and mules. The route followed the ridges of the hills, with steep drop-offs beyond the shoulders in many stretches.
