The Grange Grows in Wilson

Shaylee Wallace Barber,

Whether you are trying to get out of town for the week or just an afternoon, Arkansas boasts plenty of summer activities to help us reconnect and recharge. When thinking of that perfect place to slow down and unwind for the day, Wilson might not be the town that comes to mind first. But rest assured, this charming little community has plenty to offer for your summertime R&R.

Nestled in the heart of the Arkansas Delta, Wilson is working to make an impact on the map. Great shopping, foodie staples, the Wilson Wine Experience, hunting, fishing, cycling, historical museums, live music – there is something for everyone.

One of the most notable features of Wilson? The Grange at Wilson Gardens. The Grange is an agricultural and culinary venue rooted in southern hospitality. Only 45 minutes from Memphis, Tenn, it houses a retail building filled with shopping, a day spa, event space, kitchens, dining, and farmers market. Just outside the building you’ll find flower and produce gardens, high tunnels, paddocks with laying hens, orchard trees and more to support the community driven venue. (article is located on page 20)
