Welcome to the Dallas County Museum, located in two historic buildings on Main Street in Fordyce, Arkansas. At 221 North Main, you will find the main museum in the former 1912 McKee Building, a beautiful, two-story structure containing numerous exhibits depicting our Dallas County heritage. Wander back in time as you stroll from room to room through each exhibit, and walk up the grand staircase to the upper floor or take the elevator to continue your tour. Our Sports Annex, located in the longtime People’s Store building, is across the street from the main museum and at the end of the block. Downstairs, you can walk through the renovated building into the Dallas County Sports Museum containing memorabilia from former county residents such as Paul “Bear” Bryant, Larry Lacewell, Coach Jimmy “Red” Parker, the Sparkman Sparklers including Quinnie Hamm, Houston Nutt, Sr., and Kevin Williams, among others. Upstairs, the former Masonic Hall has been transformed into a Hall of Honor of past and present Fordyce residents.
Besides the excellent exhibits in these museums, the buildings, located in the Fordyce Historic Commercial District listed on the National Register of Historic Places, are deserving of a visit to tour and appreciate for their architectural beauty.
