In October, AHPP's Sandwiching in History tours the Jacob Wolf House Historic Site at 13775 HWY 5 S. in Norfork, Baxter Co.!

Join us October 6 at noon!

Constructed by Jacob Wolf in 1829 as the first permanent courthouse for territorial-era Izard County, the Jacob Wolf House is today the last remaining two-story dog-trot public structure in the United States. The building served early settlers finding their way into the central highlands of north Arkansas. People from the region would camp on the grounds to socialize while court was in session. John P. Houston, brother of American legend Sam Houston, served as a county clerk in this courthouse. The site was used as a river port, center of trade, and as a seat of justice. Phase III Development expected to be completed in 2023 will bring additional improvements and restorations to the site for the benefit of the public.
