Did you know...
Walnut Ridge was one of the first cities in Arkansas to embrace Amtrak service, completely renovating its historic 1908 train station for use as an Amtrak waiting room and Chamber of Commerce offices. The station, west of the track, sits in a well kept park in the center of the downtown area. Walnut Ridge serves adjacent retirement communities as well as the larger city of Jonesboro, home of Arkansas State University.
