Overview

Explore this complex of five exhibit buildings and learn about life on, and the history of, Arkansas's Grand Prairie and Delta. The Main House contains an audiovisual room and gift shop. The Summer Kitchen showcases domestic tools and kitchen instruments of old. The Peterson Building interprets life on the southern end of the Grand Prairie and the Delta through exhibits and artifacts on display. Two buildings on the museum grounds are original to the Grand Prairie. The 1877 Refeld-Hinman Loghouse is an example of how houses were built on the prairie and throughout the Delta. The 1933 Carnes-Bonner Playhouse, a miniature built-to-scale version of the Carnes' family home, displays children's furnishings, accessories, and toys.
