Prairie Grove Heritage Museum

The Prairie Grove Historical Society opened the Prairie Grove Heritage Museum (PGHM) on April 17, 2021. The Prairie Grove Historical Society seeks to preserve materials related to Prairie Grove (Washington County) and educate people about Prairie Grove’s history.

The Prairie Grove Heritage Museum is located in the historic Skelton House at 311 E. Buchanan St. in downtown Prairie Grove. The Skelton House was built around the late 1920s and was owned by the Skelton family until the City of Prairie Grove purchased it. The city allows the historical society to operate the museum in the building.

The PGHM houses many artifacts that relate to the history and heritage of the town, including an 1890s golf set, a circa 1950s Prairie Grove High School letterman sweater, hundreds of historic photographs, and Masonic artifacts. The PGHM has partnered with several local museums to bring traveling exhibits for display.

The PGHM is staffed by volunteers and is open most Saturdays and Sundays. Special tours can be arranged for groups. The museum accepts artifacts that relate to the history of the Prairie Grove community.
