Directly north of Fort Smith and 45 minutes south of the thriving Northwest Arkansas metro area sits Van Buren, Arkansas. Van Buren is a comfortable, relaxed town – nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Our residents appreciate the natural beauty that surrounds Van Buren, along with the friendly townspeople who look after one another.
The town’s population slightly exceeds 20,000, while Fort Smith’s nears 100,000. The Fayetville-Springdale-Rogers metro area (often referred to as NWA or “Northwest Arkansas”) boasts almost half a million people. All of this means excellent medical facilities and hospitals abound, as do activities, churches, airports and more.
