Publication to do feature on Jackson County

NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) - A worldwide publication will be taking a look at an interesting part of Jackson County history, helping people learn more about that history.

According to Henry Boyce with the Rock 'n' Roll Highway 67 Museum in Newport, National Geographic visited Jackson County this week to do a story about the museum.

Boyce said crews photographed and toured the museum in Newport, as well as interviewed musician Sonny Burgess. Burgess and the crew visited the old Silver Moon Club. Burgress also visited the Bushwackers Club near Swifton.

Bushwackers is the oldest surviving roadhouse on the old U.S. 67, Boyce said.
