Building Rogers

(August 28, 2010 through 2014)
 

Discover the rich architectural heritage of Rogers from its founding through the 1960s.  This family-friendly exhibition features photographs, documents, tools, and a wide variety of hands-on activities for all ages.  Visitors will discover the architects and builders who created our businesses, churches, public buildings, and homes, as well as the merchants who supplied the necessary building materials.  Youngsters and adults alike will enjoy using toy and vintage tools and designing a house with magnet shapes.  Foam building blocks will entertain very young visitors while the rest of the family explores the exhibition.  This exhibit is made possible in part by a grant from the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services, with media sponsorship by KUAF 91.3FM NPR. 

 

 


Benton County Crime Stories
(October 15, 2011 through 2014)

Explore the history of law and order in Benton County from the 1830s through the late 1900s. Discover peace officers, law breakers, infamous crimes, ridiculous incidents of mischief, courts and lawyers, and the development of laws. The exhibit is focused on Benton County, but also considers crimes that happened regionally and how they influenced the way law was upheld locally. Photographs and objects illustrate the crimes and the brave officers that maintained the peace in Benton County. A striking component of the exhibit is the restored jail cells which served Rogers from the 1890s into the 1970s. A listening station shares stories of notable area crimes, and a computer interactive challenges visitors to match suspects to wanted posters while learning about law enforcement.
