The Hawkins House
The 1895 Hawkins House presents a glimpse of how a middle-class family lived in middle America at the turn of the 20th century. Take a guided tour through its six period rooms to learn about the Hawkins family and their way of life. 

A major renovation and redecoration of the house in 1994-95 was recognized by major awards from the Victorian Society in America and the Historic Preservation Alliance of Arkansas.

Take a look inside the Hawkins House 
 

 



First Street
recreates a bank, barber shop, and general store of 1880s and 1890s Rogers, showing detailed representations of turn-of-the-20th-century interiors. Look at photographs tracing the development of Rogers’ historic First Street. Play a game of checkers or touch some of the artifacts from the shops. Watch a video showing downtown Rogers in the 1910s and 1950s.
 

 




The Attic
is a hands-on area in a replica of the upper story of a Victorian house. Try on old clothing and explore books, toys, and household items from the Teaching Collection. Favorite items include an old typewriter, sewing machine, and crank telephone.




 

The Caboose is a mid-1900s Frisco caboose located in Centennial Park (two blocks from the museum) in busy downtown Rogers. The caboose serves as a reminder of the town’s railroad history and complements the park’s new depot-styled pavilion. The caboose is open to the public during regular museum hours, May 1 through October 31.
