The South Arkansas Historical Preservation Society is a 501-c-3 not-for-profit located in El Dorado, Arkansas. The Historical Preservation Society's principal property is the beautiful Newton House Museum. Located on Jackson Street, this historic Greek Revival home has authentic décor that reflects its antebellum construction (circa 1849). As the only antebellum home open to the public in El Dorado, it offers a glimpse into the rich history of southern Arkansas. This museum is a great family attraction and one of the special places to visit while in El Dorado.
The Historical Preservation Society also has recently added 1,100 sq ft of exhibition space in our administration building that features rotating exhibits from our permanent collections as well as traveling exhibits through the year.
Our Goal is to assist the community by sharing the Council's Mission and Vision.
Members of the community are invited to share as well as learn what grant opportunities are offered, meet & connect with community stakeholders, learn about various project ideas people have and the types of grants and/or programs they would like to consider offering. We look forward to seeing you!
