Faulkner County Museum To Be Preserved, Restored

Faulkner County Museum-Jail, Conway, Arkansas

The Faulkner County Museum in downtown Conway will be preserved and restored over an 8-year span, according to the local Museum Commission, with help from the community, business stakeholders, and volunteers.

The Commission seeks to combine public, private and grant money to complete needed restoration projects beginning with roof repairs. Other needs include insulation, plumbing, wiring, windows, flooring, lighting, exterior painting, and lot drainage.

The Commission plans to raise several hundred thousand dollars in private donations to help renovate the building to better serve the Museum’s needs. The 8-year restoration project would end in 2023 to coincide with Faulkner County’s 150th birthday.
