The Arkansas Historic Wine Museum, located at Cowie Wine Cellars in Paris (Logan County), is the only museum in the United States dedicated to preserving the wine heritage of an entire state. Though not incorporated until 1994, the museum was started as a hobby by Robert Cowie in 1967. Over the years, Cowie has accumulated an impressive collection of wine-related artifacts. The museum has been recognized with several honors and awards.
