Endowing the Future, Preserving the Past

Beginning with our name, the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History seeks to preserve our Ozark heritage. Shiloh was the name of the pioneer community that became Springdale in the 1870s. As a regional history museum located in downtown Springdale since 1968, we offer a gathering point for residents, scholars, school children, community groups, heritage seekers, and newcomers to the area. We work every day to honor in perpetuity the people who have shaped our history.

The Shiloh Museum Board of Trustees recognizes a critical link between long-term financial security and its ability to preserve the past for the future. Preservation of such legacies as our award-winning photograph collection, our irreplaceable historic buildings, and our vast collection of artifacts requires careful planning and investment by the community, especially by those who care about who we are and how we got here.
