The alligator farm was founded in 1902 by Mr. H.L.Campbell and sold to Mr. Donny S. Older between the years of 1902 and 1929. It was known as the Hot Springs " Gator " Farm with over 1500 alligator Missippians and a small museum.The Alligator Farm was started because of the need for some type of tourist attraction due to the great influx of people who at this time came to take the Hot Thermal Baths,and there were no attractions other than the natural resources. The reasoning behind the origination of the Alligator Farm was due to the fact that the alligators are native and are found in South Arkansas between Hope and Texarkana in an area known as Grassy Lake.In 1945, the farm was sold to Mr. and Mrs. Jack Bridges, Sr., and the name became The Arkansas Alligator Farm with the addition of other animals such as monkeys, raccoons, big logger-head turtles, and a gift shop.In 1965, the farm was purchased by Jack Bridges, Jr. and his wife Sue who presently operate the attraction with many added attractions such as a petting zoo with whitetail deer, ostrich, llamas, fallow deer, rheas, sheep, and pygmy goats. Feed is furnished to feed animals. There are also raccoons,albino raccoon, several types of primates, Arkansas mt. lions, wild ducks, other fowl, and a small museum. You can also pet a real live alligator with the help of a highly trained alligator farm employee.

Very cool. Good experience. If you kid likes alligators take them here. Plus they have goats, sheep, deer and emu which you hand feed. The animals are clean and happy. You can go in the pens with the goats. I don't recommend the little ones do that,... (More)
