The City also has many subdivisions with lots available. Housing in the City is diverse, with many older traditional homes and many that are new construction.
The City is known for its small town values, but offers many amenities that are often only found in larger communities. The Aquatic Center, Children’s library, and parks are among the features that make Prairie Grove attractive to families.
Prairie Grove is rich in history. From the acres and acres of historic preservation in the State Battlefield Park, to the downtown businesses and older residential neighborhoods, many buildings date to the turn of the century or even earlier.
