"Historical tour in Jonesboro"

It was an interesting tour with a few stops at some historic sites. I realize due to time constraints and permission from places, that passing by or slowing down is the best it could be. It would have been nice to pause at some places to get a decent picture . The historic details were interesting and his additions to the tape filled in some more detail. It was a good tour and the driver was friendly and personable.
