JFK bust.

Puffy-Eyed JFK of the Dam

Follow the JFK Monument signs and pull in and park near the bust of President Kennedy and chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, Arkansas US Senator, Wilbur Mills. You should walk over to the covered overlook of the Greer's Ferry Dam and take in the view. Be on the lookout for mosquito-eating bats.
