The Jacob Wolf House is the oldest public structure in the state and was constructed in 1829. It served as the first permanent courthouse for Izard County in the Arkansas Territory. The National Park Service states that the structure is the sole surviving example of historic integrity constructed for a civic purpose. Many early settlers who were passing through would set up camp at the house to practice their trades and favorite pastimes, which inspired the events for the springtime calendar.

The Jacob Wolf House sits atop a hill in Norfork overlooking the juncture of the White and North Fork Rivers. The home has been many things including a landmark along the river, a center of trade and a seat of justice. It has also served as a refuge for many of the early pioneers who settled in the highlands of north Arkansas.
