Zachary Taylor's Chimney.

Zachary Taylor's Chimney

During the 1840s, future U.S. President Zachary Taylor was commander of the military garrison at Fort Smith. His private home was once located on the grounds of what is now Immaculate Conception Church and St. Anne's Academy. A fire destroyed the home just before the turn-of-the-century, but what is referred to as Zachary Taylor's Chimney is still standing.
