Anyone live on or close to I-40 out of Ft Smith Ark?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I've been trying for days now to get some information from a realtor in that area. So neighbors I turn to family for help.
There is a Castle located just off I-40 on the Oklahoma side (on the map Ft Smith is on the other end) My wife and I want to know its name and if its still for sale? We have lost the United Country it was listed in.
Any help appreciated. Thank you for helping. :o)

Here is a page from the Ft. Smith newspaper that show several realtors. If one didn't serve you properly, maybe another one will.
Here is the url for United Country on line. It looks like the Poteau, OK agency would be about the closest. http://www.unitedcountry.com/
Here is where you go on line to find newspapers from anywhere. http://www.start4all.com/

Contact the people at United Country in Poteau, OK, as Notforprint suggested. I have had contact with them many times, and I can guarantee you that they are all go-getters, especially Darali. If they don't have it listed and it is for sale, they will find the information for you.

I live in the area you describe. I don't know of any castle in this area. If you can give more detailed directions, I'd be happy to drive over and check it out for you. Mona

I've had triple bypass surgery since I saw the ad. My memory has some blank spots and the name of the town is one of those spots.
Here is what my wife remembered: It was built by a Confederate General he had blocks brought over from Scotland. It has a circle drive and 10 acres. A guest/servant quarters and 2 car garage. It is off I-40 on the OK side Coming from FT Smith, ARK.
We were considering trying to get it and convert it to a B&B.
We sent a letter to United Country (snailmail) don't know if they will help or not.
MIXON REALTY was handleing the property from the best we can recall.
