Ground will be broken Wednesday in Fort Smith for the long-anticipated U.S. Marshals Museum. The Western Arkansas city was chosen out of a sixteen city national competition.
This groundbreaking ceremony coincides with the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Marshals Service, an appropriate match considering Fort Smith is a venerated place in the Service’s history.
Jim Dunn is president and CEO of the museum. He said the decision was made by the US Marshals Service Director, John Clark.
