Civil War Round Table
Thursday, February 6, 2020 - 7:00 pm

Greg Mayfield will be speaking about his ancestors who owned 330 acres of Leetown near Pea Ridge. You may find more info about this program and the Round Table here.​

Old Time Movies
Sunday, February 9, 2020 - 2:00 pm

Once again, Bill and Mary Jane Cole (two of our docents), will be showing old time movies on a vintage 1940s projector and sound system. The two sound movies that we will be showing are  "Murder Case" (1930, 30 minutes), in which Laurel & Hardy are looking forward to a vast inheritance in a short time and "Dirty Work" (1933, 20 minutes), in which Laurel and Hardy are expert chimney cleaners. We will provide popcorn during intermission. Admission is free and open to the public. This is an experience you shouldn't miss!

Settler's Cabin
The old cabin is now open to the public during museum hours. Simply ask the museum docent to unlock the cabin for you if you want to see it. You can read more about the cabin here.

Wish List
To support events associated with the old Settler's Cabin, we could use folding aluminum camping tables, folding benches, a cast iron flat griddle, roasting sticks, and a pot lifter. We also want to add more porches and fencing around the cabin, so monetary donations would be much appreciated.
