About the Museum

Preserving the Heritage of Rogers

The Rogers Historical Museum serves not only Rogers but all of Northwest Arkansas, a rapidly growing region with a rich heritage and a vibrant entrepreneurial spirit.

The museum preserves that heritage and shares that spirit. The recipient of many state and national awards, the Rogers Historical Museum is among the fewer than 5% of museums in the nation accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

Historical Museum

A Wealth of History

There is a wealth of history to discover in Northwest Arkansas. During the Civil War, the area was the scene of what many historians consider the most important battle fought west of the Mississippi, the Battle of Pea Ridge. At the turn of the 20th century the region was the leading apple-producing area in the nation. After World War II, Northwest Arkansas became a center for the poultry and trucking industries and the birthplace of the world’s largest retailer.
