Southern Tenant Farmers Museum

This museum is located inside a restored drycleaners/service station building that served as the temporary headquarters of the Southern Tenant Farmers Union, established in 1934.  This was the first agricultural union in the country to involve both black and white tenant farmers in the same organization.  The museum, an Arkansas State University Heritage Site, tells the stories of tenant farming, sharecropping, and the rise and fall of the union.
