Springdale's Fitzgerald Station to Undergo Assessment as Part of Preservation Effort

The Fitzgerald Station historic site in east Springdale will undergo a conservation assessment. The property, which once belonged to early Springdale settler John Fitzgerald, is a so-called witness site because of major historic events that took place along Old Wire Road. The Northwest Arkansas Trailblazers deeded the property to the City of Springdale after purchasing 130 acres of land on Fitzgerald Mountain for the construction of a mountain biking and hiking trail system.
