Visitors Center for the Arkansas Post State Park

The Arkansas Post State Park is kind of a companion piece to the Arkansas Post National Memorial. It consists of several buildings and artifacts from the early history of the area. They are also trying to preserve the prairie grass native to Arkansas by replanting 4 acres of the grass.

Main Museum Area

The different buildings are set up with appropriate artifacts and items to their function. The main area for other artifacts and displays is the Peterson Building. The Peterson Building was named after John L. Peterson who was instrumental in getting the park started.

Pioneer Kitchen

This shows an early pioneer kitchen. The kitchen was frequently built in a separate building from the main house. This was done for safety reasons and to keep the heat from the kitchen from affecting the house during the summer.
