Posted by Allyson Twiggs-Dyer on Mon, Dec 22, 2014

By: Laurie Marshall

Rogers, Arkansas is proud to be the home of many businesses that grew up here in Northwest Arkansas, but are known around the world. Some, you may have heard of, but some, you may not. One company that might fall into that latter group is House of Webster. They have been known for high-quality preserves, jams, jellies and salsas for decades – in fact, they celebrated 80 years of business in 2014!

Shop Local In Rogers For The Holidays

Posted by Allyson Twiggs-Dyer on Wed, Nov 26, 2014

By: Laurie Marshall

When Valere Rene became ill a few years ago and was unable to continue working at her job with a busy dental practice, the family income was affected. When school was about to begin for her two daughters that fall, she found she was unable to provide the usual shopping trip to purchase teenage-girl-approved bags for them to carry. As a solution, Valere did what many other women have done in recent years – she turned to DIY.

Holiday Shopping Vintage Style In Rogers

Posted by Mel Lockcuff on Wed, Nov 12, 2014

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I’m a little obsessed with all things vintage. It’s true. Show me an antique store, and if given the time, I’ll likely spend hours browsing the booths, finding treasures. One year my family even decided to shop only vintage for our holiday gifts. That was such an amazing Christmas.

100 Things to Do in Rogers #16: War Eagle Mill & Bridge

Posted by Jennifer Haile on Thu, Jul 24, 2014

Recently while I was visiting Hobbs State Park, I drove across the bridge by the War Eagle Mill and realized that while I have seen the mill while shopping at craft fairs or driving across the historic bridge, I've never actually visited the mill. I decided that needed to change...immediately. For assignment #16 on the 100 Things To Do in Rogers series, you must visit War Eagle Mill. Besides for the gorgeous drive to get there, it is a sight worth seeing if you are visiting northwest Arkansas. If you live here, you don't have an excuse not to visit!

Guest Blog Post: Rogers Public Library

Posted by Allyson Twiggs-Dyer on Fri, Feb 07, 2014

When you visit Rogers, Arkansas, you’ll find plenty of things to do outside; enjoy some hiking and nature talks at Hobbs State Park Conservation Area, shop “al fresco” at the Pinnacle Hills Promenade Mall, and in the summer, plan a visit to the new Rogers Aquatic Center. But if you find yourself needing a little down time (or a place to warm up!) the Rogers Public Library is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. The Rogers Public Library (RPL) was opened in 1904 with a whopping 458 books on its shelves and a staff of volunteers who were dedicated to expanding the cultural opportunities of their community. Today, the shelves hold not only 140,000+ books in a wide variety of genres, but also audio books, movies, music, and “periodicals” (that’s the librarian word for magazines). There are also special sections for large print books, graphic novels and books printed in Spanish. For over a decade, the RPL has been named “First” or “Runner-up” in the Best Library category in local media surveys.
