Looking for a small town feel, yet super close to the heart of Northwest Arkansas? Pea Ridge is a fast growing community approximately 10 minutes from Interstate 49, but also convenient to Beaver Lake, as well as recreational opportunities in Southwest Missouri. Pea Ridge is most famously known as home of the Pea Ridge National Military Park, which marks the Battle of Pea Ridge, one of the largest battles west of the Mississippi during the Civil War. And the city of Pea Ridge embraces this history by naming thier streets after participants of the Battle of Pea Ridge. The East/West streets are named after confederate soldiers and the North/South streets are named after the union soldiers. Another unique event Pea Ridge hosts every year is the Pea Ridge Mule Jump, yes, you heard that correct!!! You can come watch mules jump barriers as high as 6 1/2 feet!
