Hwy 177 - Soon after Hughes Store you'll see Hwy 177 turn
off to the right. This is a short stretch that runs down to the White River where it dead
ends. Various highways in the area are broken up by several miles between sections. It is
hard to associate this section with the road that goes across the Norfork Dam. This
section of Hwy 177 is not part of the tour.
Historical Site - On Hwy 5 you'll
drive past a cemetery and an old church built in 1886 named the Old Historic Galatia
