This event is a fundraiser for the Fort Smith Museum of History.  Founded in 1910, the Fort Smith Museum of History has been a private, non-profit, 501(c)3 organization for 112 years. We are the oldest functioning museum in the state, located in the historic 1906 Atkinson-Williams Warehouse right here in Fort Smith, with a mission of collecting, sharing, and preserving the history of Fort Smith and the region. Through education, exhibitions, programs, and outreach, we educate the region on the history of the area. We serve five counties, Sebastian, Crawford, and Franklin counties in Arkansas, and Sequoyah and Leflore counties in Oklahoma. 


“Great Scott!  This is historic!”
