Keeper Of The Plains Plaza

At the meeting point of the Big and Little Arkansas rivers is a weathered steel statue by American Indian sculptor, Blackbear Bosin. The Keeper of the Plains was installed in 1974 to celebrate the nation's bicentennial. Standing tall at 44 feet (13.41 meters), it is set on a huge headland and is considered a sacred site by the Native American tribes. Encircling it is a plaza with many displays, describing the lives of local American Indians who dwelt here. There are walking bridges to access the area. Fire drums on bluffs at the foot of the sculpture light almost every night, giving a dramatic effect to its surroundings.

Frank Lloyd Wright' Allen-Lambe House

The Allen-Lambe House was built in 1917 by the celebrated architect Frank Lloyd Wright and was one of the last Prairie style houses he designed. Originally designed for statesman Henry J. Allen and his wife, it was later sold to the Allen-Lambe House Foundation. The building is now a museum that conducts tours for visitors. Some of the best examples of the Prairie style of architecture as well as Frank Lloyd's distinct style of interior design can be seen in this house. By his own admission, it was one of the best houses he designed.
