That’s the message of the Van Buren Chamber of Commerce. We welcome you to join us as we embrace the future from this most unique place we call home. Van Buren, Crawford County, Arkansas has a fascinating history. Sitting on the banks of the Arkansas River, north of Fort Smith and just across from “Indian Territory” – Eastern Oklahoma, Van Buren business leaders positioned themselves for the opportunities of western expansion. The river, and later rail, served as supply lines to the west. Key westward expansion leaders like Sam Houston and Albert Pike made Van Buren their choice for trade and commerce. Today, through industrial manufacturing, professional business services, multi-modal transportation services and quality healthcare, Van Buren continues to provide needed goods and services to the region, the country and the world.
