Phoenix Village Mall

Phoenix Village, opened in 1970, wasn't just the first mall in Ft. Smith; it was the first mall in Arkansas. Already showing signs of poor health when I first moved to Arkansas in the early 80s, it is now dead despite many poor attempts to revitalize it.


It has so far failed to live up to the "Phoenix" part of its name.
