Winslow is close to many Fayetteville attractions, which means that you can visit some of your favorites in the same day. Suggested places to visit are outlined below, and although they represent only a few of the many attractions available, they are typical of the respect that the people of Winslow and the surrounding area attach to their culture and tradition. The same respect, with the added attraction of friendly care and service, is extended to visitors who stay at a Winslow Inn.
150 NW Skyline Drive
Mount Sequoyah is named after the Cherokee leader who is credited with the creation of the Cherokee alphabet, and who is said to have translated the New Testament for Indians. The mountain stands 1,700 feet above sea level and is the highest point in Fayetteville. Climbing to the west side of the mountain will give you a spectacular view of the city and of two distant hills, separated by a gap which is called the Trail of Tears where Indians rode through on the way to their reservations. Be sure to take your camera with you to capture the magnificent scenery.
Clinton House Museum
930 W. Clinton Drive
(formerly California Blvd)
See where the Clintons started out in married life. This is a 1930s English-style bungalow and was the very first home of Bill and Hillary Clinton. It is also the wedding site of the famous couple and one of the top Fayetteville attractions. See photographic memorabilia and visit the gift shop where you can buy souvenirs and mementos of your visit. The museum organizes public tours, receptions and meetings, and you can even follow in the footsteps of the Clintons and get married here.

Washington Country Courthouse
280 N. College
This is one building well worth seeing when you're in Fayetteville. It was constructed in 1904 and hand-cut local stone was carried to the building site on wagons drawn by oxen. Inside, on the main lobby walls, it features an important and artistic mural that features a World War I scene of uniformed soldiers. It is a fascinating work of art that was funded with dime contributions from schoolchildren. You will find the Courthouse at the intersection of Center and College.
