About us


Jessieville, in Arkansas ' Ouachitas Mountains , has a diverse character that includes much more than mountains and lakes. One of the few towns in Arkansas named after a woman (Jessie Gillenwater), is in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains just north of Hot Springs Village. It is on Scenic Hwy 7 which follows one of the old Indian routes into the Valley of the Vapors (now known as Hot Springs ). Patsy Montana, the late Singing Cowgirl, was born and reared in Jessieville, Arkansas. The only girl in a family of 11 brothers, she was a star of the country music stage, movies & radio. Her signature song was "I Want to Be a Cowboy's Sweetheart."
Jessieville,  the home of the award winning restaurant, The Shack, Herbs Plus herb farm and several crystal mines, is 22 miles north of Hot Springs on Scenic Hwy 7. It is the last town in Garland County on that highway and the last bit of "civilization" before entering the Ouachita National Forest . There are several biking, horse, and hiking trails - with one wheelchair accessible trail at the Jessieville Ranger Station, as well as scenic drives in the area.
