Louise Thaden's childhood home has been moved and is being reconstructed on the Thaden School campus.

School site

The land on which the Thaden School is being built is the former home of the Benton County Fairgrounds, but it also was the site of Bentonville High School in the 1920s, when Louise Thaden was a student there.
