BUT, what was it back when XNA was built, in the late 90s, early 00s?
XNA opened in late 1998. In the 2000 census, the Fayetteville/Springdale/Rogers/Bentonville MSA had 311,121 people and the Fort Smith MSA had 207, 290 people. Since then, Fort Smith has had modest growth, but nothing like NW Arkansas.
