Welcome to the Lowell Historical Museum Website!

The Lowell Historical Museum is comprised of a dedicated staff of volunteers committed to educating the populace about the rich history of Lowell, Arkansas. Led by Museum Director, Elizabeth Estes, the museum takes you on an adventure back in time to show you what life was like in this wonderful town from the Civil War era to present. Bring your children to experience "Camp Mudtown" an educational presentation exhibiting Civil War era tools, clothing and weaponry used by both the North and the South. Come find out what is was like to grow up in Lowell and how this town came to be what it is today.

The City of Lowell, a town with a past, a city with a future!

The Lowell Historical Museum will preserve and interpret historical objects and works of art that build a bridge of culture and understanding of the history of Lowell and the greater Northwest Arkansas Region and honors the service and sacrifice of veterans and their families.



OLD DREAM: The dream for a museum started in 1976. It wasn’t until June 1, 2003 when Mayor Phil Biggers cut the ribbon, opened the permanent location of the museum at 304 Jackson Place and said, “This museum is a sign of the direction we want to be going in this city.”   As Elza Tucker stood in the door of the museum and greeted visitors, he said, “This has been a dream of mine since 1976.” Vera Lou Fowler, Ann Villines, Glenna Yeager and others helped renovate the museum building and served as volunteers for many years.

NEW DREAM: In March, 2016 the Lowell Historical Museum Foundation of NWA, Inc. was set up as a 501(c)(3). nonprofit organization. Donors may deduct contributions as provided in IRC Section 170. On July 3, 2016 the Lowell Historical Museum celebrated its 40th birthday and the museum has outgrown its present facilities.

Presently, Mayor Long stated, “Properly preserving and sharing our city's history over the years has made it necessary to make new history by building a contemporary facility that will serve as an educational center for many generations to come on the Kathleen Johnson Memorial Park property. It will have access to the Regional Razorback Greenway Trail system. The City of Lowell has a rich heritage and we look forward to working together with the community in bringing this vision to reality.”
