The city of Springdale established Shiloh Museum in 1965, initially with a large collection of archeological items from Native American cultures that were donated to the museum. Its mission has grown from preserving and displaying historical artifacts related to Springdale to include the a six-county area of the Ozarks. The museum today has the largest public collection of historic artifacts in Northwest Arkansas, including more than a half million photographs.
The museum property covers more than a city block with a 22,000-square-foot museum and several historic structures. It provides meeting space for numerous community organizations and historic presentations each month.
It is located at 118 W. Johnson Ave., Springdale. For membership information, go to the Shiloh Museum's online website.
