Conway, Arkansas, is a bustling college town and one of the fastest growing communities in the state, with a population of over 60,000, and a median age of only 27. It is approximately 30 miles northwest of Little Rock, and was founded in 1875 by A.P. Robinson, who came to the area after the Civil War. Conway's history includes the Cherokee Indians, who took the Trail of Tears (1831-1838), and trekked through the area, stopping along the Arkansas River. This location is now preserved as Caldron Settlement Park, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers property. Conway also occupies a spot on the legendary Butterfield Mail Route, which ran from Memphis to Chicago. Today, the town is home to three post-secondary educational institutions, earning it the nickname, "The City of Colleges".
