In Medieval England, town criers were the chief means of news communication with the townspeople, Hear ye, Hear ye, Fort Smith. Royal proclamations, Announcements, Market days, even selling bags of coffee will all be proclaimed by our own downtown crier who throughout the centuries—has welcomed friends to Downtown Fort Smith.
Look when there’s an important announcement for all to hear to catch people’s attention. You can expect him to stand at the corner of 5th and Garrison, stands next to the First National Bank with a scroll in hand and shouts ‘hear ye, hear ye!’. And then would proceed making his official announcement that would originate from the Sir John MacIntosh.
John speaks loud and clear.
