St. Francis County Museum

603 Front Street

The St. Francis County Museum is filled with artifacts, photographs, fossils, documents, and more, all of which paint a vivid picture of our rich history. The museum is housed in the Rush-Gates Home, built in 1906 by Dr. J. O. Rush. It was completely renovated in 1998 to house the museum.

You'll learn about the unique geological phenomenon known as Crowley's Ridge. Displays include Native American pottery and other prehistoric artifacts. Also included are displays covering the African-American history of St. Francis County, agricultural history, and our veterans of armed conflicts.

The St. Francis County Museum and Rush-Gates Historic Home is the perfect place to learn about the history of St. Francis County and Eastern Arkansas. The 7000-square-foot home contains many artifacts of the era, including a reconstruction of Dr. Rush's office.
