A ‘precious’ exhibit opens in Clark County

Two exhibits became open to the public for admiration during an open house Tuesday, Oct. 26, at the Clark County Historical Museum.

One features life-sized characters from the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and the “Star Trek” enterprise.

The second exhibit, titled “Photos by Ross,” includes photography by the late Jane Ross. The photos in that exhibit include images captured by Ross around Arkadelphia during her lifetime, placed alongside contemporary images of the same location.

The exhibit was created by the Museum Studies class at Henderson State University.

The Clark County Historical Museum and train depot is located at 750 S. 5th St., Arkadelphia. Its hours are noon until 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday and 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Fridays. For more information about the museum or exhibits, call (870) 230-1360 or visit the museum’s website.
