The museum houses a variety of permanent and changing exhibits, preserving the history and art of this health resort town and its people starting with its early settlers in the 1880s who came seeking the healing waters and the early artists who built the early 20th century arts colony. From the exhibits you will discover how “this chaotic tent city of 10,000 souls exploded into a Victorian Health Spa with 54 luxurious hotels”.
In the past 4 years the Greene Co. Museum has brought a historical home that had set vacant & was deteriorating back to life as we imagine it was during the time Greene Co's only governor (J. Marion Futrell & his family built this home) We see our museum as a way to preserve Greene Co. History and to prevent valuable historical items from being forgotten.

Our museum is a dream come to. When we first organized we had no money and no definite place for a museum. A local Bank gave us an older home which was built by the only man from Greene Co. Ar. to ever serve as Governor of Ar. (1933-1937) His name was J. Marion Futrell. The home is 100 years old in 2008 and it took us 4 years to restore the home. We opened to the public on Jan. 12, 2008.
