The Siloam Springs Museum opened in its first home on June 20, 1971. The museum moved to its present-day location in 1972 and today, plans to renovate the approximately 4,100 square-foot space are progressing. In late November, about $370,000 was approved for the project, which will add about 400 square feet to the building.

2018 Arrives with Anticipation

Jan 2, 2018

Becca Martin Brown, features editor for the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, is looking forward to 2018. In a conversation recorded at our annual holiday show last month she delivered more than a dozen reasons the new year is anticipated by many people.

As we end 2017, we look back at some of our favorite musical performances recorded for Ozarks at Large in the last half of the year. We hear from Ladies Night, Knife in the Water, Nive Nielsen, Jasper Logan, Joey Farr & the Fuggins' Wheat Band, Isaac Hoskins and more.

If you want to support your local community while you’re preparing for the holidays this year, there’s lots of ways to do so. You can buy food for your feast from local farmers or you can purchase gifts at a locally-owned boutique. You can even decorate your home with a locally-sourced Christmas tree. The Lollis Christmas Tree Farm in Rudy sells mistletoe, wreaths and Christmas trees. They're open from 10 a.m. to dark daily until Dec. 22.
