This year marks the 110th anniversary of the Arkansas History Commission and State Archives. The Arkansas History Commission was created during the 1905 session of the Arkansas General Assembly for the purpose of collecting and preserving Arkansas’s significant wealth of historic material.
In celebration of this milestone, the History Commission will host an open house and anniversary commemoration on Monday, April 27 from 10 a.m. until noon. Members of the general public are invited to visit the research room at 1 Capitol Mall, view some of the state’s most significant historical documents, including Arkansas’s original state constitutions, preview an exhibit on the agency’s history, and meet the staff to learn more about how the History Commission has been a vital part of preserving Arkansas history for well over a century.
The Arkansas History Commission is located at 1 Capitol Mall on the second floor of the Multi Agency Complex Building behind the Arkansas State Capitol building. For more information, please call 682-6900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
