Although these oil fields no longer play a leading role in our nation's destiny, at one time the dramatic events of the Arkansas oil boom focused the attention and the dreams of the nation on south Arkansas.


Prior to the discovery of oil in 1921, the area's economic future was linked to declining cotton and timber markets. Prospects were bleak. No one anticipated on of the wildest oil booms in the nation's history.


To help preserve the history of the oil boom and share this story with the community, the Museum has 25,000 square foot exhibit center, an education center, and a collection management facility, a Woodland Walk, and the Oil Field Park.


The Exhibit Center and Oil Field Park are fully accessible.
