Under Construction

If you've been by the museum complex in the last few days, you've noticed plenty of work underway. The cabin is undergoing maintenance, a water line is being installed, and landscaping is in progress. Pardon our mess! We are gearing up for our May 3 opening.

Thanks to all who are helping us get into ship shape!

Of Scouts and Spears

Scouts...Monday evening the Diamond Girl Scouts unearthed a time capsule buried in the Town Square (now Veteran's Memorial Park) some twenty-five years ago. A new time capsule was filled and placed in the west garden of the Old Jail Museum.  A crowd estimated at two hundred attended the event.

And Spears...Judge Jim Spears will entertain the Historical Society with a presentation regarding legendary U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves Monday evening at 7 PM at the Community Room of Farmer's Bank. All are welcome to attend. Judge Spears is the founder of the Bass Reeves Legacy Initiative and serves on the Board of the U.S. Marshals Museum in Fort Smith.
