Rogers Historical Museum (Rogers, AR 72756-4546)

Campaign for a Major Expansion of the Rogers Historical Museum

Construction, fixtures, furniture, equipment, and fundraising expenses for a new museum facility that will house interpretive exhibit galleries, collections processing and storage areas, programming spaces, and offices.

The Rogers Historical Museum seeks an NEH Challenge Grant of $800,000 to assist in the construction of a new facility to house exhibit galleries, collections processing and storage areas, programming spaces, and offices. After completion of the new facility, the current main facility will be used primarily for education. This new facility will more than triple the Museum’s current gallery space and will more than double its programming space and its collections storage and processing space. With this expansion the Museum will be able to grow its already impressive humanities collections and will be able to expand upon its long tradition of providing quality humanities exhibits and programs. In the new facility the Museum will implement an exciting new interpretive plan which will make area history, and thus the Museum itself, relevant to the increasingly diverse population of Northwest Arkansas, the rapidly growing area the Museum serves.
