The Chaffee Crossing Historic District is a unique area in the middle of Chaffee Crossing development where WWII-era history is combining with modern planning to create a walkable urban community. The Historic District includes two-story WWII-era barracks and single level administration type buildings available for purchase. A proposed Planned Zoning Development (PZD) of the Historic District generally sits between Taylor Ave., Darby Ave. and Terry St. Within the primary district are sub-districts with defined types of businesses permitted. The PZD is pending approval by Fort Chaffee Redevelopment Authority Board of Trustees and City of Fort Smith Board of Directors.
