Arkansas Post Museum

Check out the slide shows, pictures, videos, and information below.

The Arkansas Post Museum is a small park at the junction of  US 165 and ARK169, but has excellent displays of the way of life long past. This museum houses reconstruction of the type of buildings and memorabilia that one would see in the late 1800's and early 1900's on the Grand Prairie and Delta areas of Arkansas. The Refeld-Hinman log house, seen above, is an original building from 1877. In the Peterson Building is a 1933 playhouse, built-to-scale version of the Carnes' family home and displays scale children's toys, furnishings and accessories.
