Lexa, Arkansas was once a bustling and thriving community. It was a refueling station for the first railroads. There was a constant flow of people as they came to the station and visited the town while waiting for their next leg of their journey to start. The train station was closed down in the 1930s, and the life of the town became slower as the population dwindled. Today, visitors to Lexa can enjoy the relaxing serenity that comes with a small-town lifestyle.
Only thirteen miles away is the city of Marianna. There are a couple of tail-waggin' activities to do here, one of which is exploring St. Francis National Forest. Craving a little camping?
