Enjoy Free Admission To An 1830s Home-Turned-Museum At Arksansas’ Historic Old State House Museum
Since its construction in 1833, the original State Capitol of Arkansas has seen its fair share of historical events. It was witness to Arkansas’ admission to the union and becoming a state in 1836, the vote to secede from the Union to join the Confederacy in 1861, and hosted two acceptance speeches by a United States president. Its history is showcased in what is now called the Old State House Museum.
