The Trial of Maude Allen
One of the most sensational court cases in Fort Smith history, this ‘adults only’ trail will recount the late 1800’s case featuring charges of sending pornography through the mail brought against a young lady named Maude Allen, who happened to be the mistress of a gentleman destined to become a 4-term Mayor of Fort Smith. Well known citizens will take the roles of Maude, her lover, and her lover’s wife. Refreshments will be served before this night court held at the Fort Smith National Historic Site.
