Information on:

Southern Tenant Farmers Museum

117 S Main Street


The Southern Tenant Farmers Museum enhances knowledge and understanding of tenant farming and agricultural labor movements in the Mississippi River Delta.


To preserve the history and promote the legacy of sharecropping, tenant farming and the farm labor movement.


We are located in the historic Mitchell-East Building at 117 S Main Street in Tyronza, Arkansas.  Restoration of this building and development of the museum was made possible through grants from the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council and a “We the People” Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

A story too few people know about. Learn the history of labor, the Arkansas Delta, farming and more. A visit here is time well spent.

Check the museum's Facebook page, or call first. It's very possible that the people here will close without telling you (or without giving you an easy way to know in advance), and then you'll just waste your gas and your time driving to the site. There is one restaurant in town, and one gas station/convenience store on the outskirts. I'll revise this review if I ever manage to catch this place open. (Don't trust Google's hours, BTW.)
