Bentonville is much more than Walmart’s hometown. In the past 20 years, Bentonville has transformed itself from a sleepy, small-town into a bustling center of commerce and innovative entrepreneurialism in the Northwest Arkansas region. The town is home to several attractions including the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, which is the first major art museum to open in the United States since the late 1970s. Sam Walton’s first store, Walton’s Five and Dime, still stands along the town square and is adjacent to the Walmart Museum. Located about six miles from the heart of Bentonville is the University of Arkansas, making our apartment community's location a fantastic choice for college students, professors, and faculty alike.
