FORT SMITH, Arkansas — The people behind an Arkansas museum dedicated to U.S. Marshals are working with the Army Corps of Engineers on officially securing land in Fort Smith for the building.
The Times Record reports (http://bit.ly/1vuMt2q ) museum president and CEO Jim Dunn says the Robert Westphal family is ready to donate land along the Arkansas River to the museum. But an easement issue with the Army Corps of Engineers has to be resolved first.
Dunn says the Corps' easement was established when it was building the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System.
Dunn says the family will transfer the property once the easement with the Corps is worked out. An architect will be hired and then site work will begin.
A groundbreaking ceremony on the project was held last week
