Check out Shiloh Museum’s new permanent exhibit, Modern Times

The Shiloh Museum recently opened Modern Times, a new permanent exhibit focusing on Northwest Arkansas from 1950 to the present.

“The modern era in Northwest Arkansas can be summed up in two words: ‘growth’ and ‘change,’” said Susan Young, museum outreach coordinator and curator of the exhibit. “The exhibit takes a look at the driving forces behind that growth and change: Beaver Lake, the rise of the poultry, retail, transportation, and tourism industries, and the University of Arkansas.”

The museum is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and admission is free. For more information, call 750-8165 or email You can also visit us online at
