Shown here is the entrance to the Arkansas State University Museum located in Jonesboro (Craighead County). The institution that began with four display cases in 1933 has grown into a 21,000-square-foot facility that preserves impressive historic, archaeological, and natural history collections. In 1973, the museum became one of the first in the Southeast to be accredited by the American Association of Museums. Today, it is the largest and most comprehensive museum in northeast Arkansas.
