Shiloh Museum of Ozark History
118 West Johnson
Springdale AR 72762
Shiloh Museum takes its name from the pioneer community of Shiloh,
which became Springdale in the 1870s.
Most of what you'll see at the museum highlights the real shapers of
Ozark history - the everyday men, women, and children who lived in our
towns and rural communities. We tell their stories through a variety
of exhibits on native peoples, pioneers, the Civil War, the fruit and
timber industries, and traditional folklife. There’s plenty of fun for
all ages - you can use a grinding stone, try on some old-timey clothes,
listen to folk music, or sit and play a game of checkers.
Along with exhibits, you can explore six historic buildings on the
museum grounds, including a log cabin, a barn, and a town home of the
1940s. Shaded walking paths and picnic tables offer a chance to relax
and remember a time when life moved at a slower pace.
The Shiloh Museum also houses a research library with an extensive
collection of over 700,000 photographs of Ozark life. We offer
programs, lectures, and changing exhibits on a variety of regional
history topics. The museum is less than three miles from the
Interstate 540, not far off the beaten path.
