Small museum with lots of history. Great place to go for young and old. Be sure to take the guided tour of the house. Hands on stations for children to learn and have fun. Very friendly staff!

A neat little museum the shows the history of the area includes an old cage style jail and history of the razor back name. Also attached is a house that shows how the middle class lived in the early 1900s. The museum is no charge and worth an hour of your time.

The museum shows the history not only of Rogers, but also Monte Ne, which is close by. There is also a room for kids to touch and experience items from the past. Fun and well worth the time.

This is a hands on museum. It has been expended recently, has a lot of Rogers history. It is free, within walking distant of the Daisy Air rife museum. Worth a visit.

A capital campaign is currently underway to fund this expansion. Current exhibits show many historical facts about Rogers, Arkansas and it's beginning. There are also exhibits for children.
