Coming up in a brand new edition of “Exploring Arkansas,” we’re seeing how restoring murals is revitalizing a town’s history and art; reliving Ozark history by experiencing the lifestyle in early pioneer historic buildings; finding out about the “white” in White Cliffs Natural Area and trying not to “shoot my eye out” at the Daisy Airgun Museum. Watch with us in the premiere on Wednesday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m.

Historic Berryville has revitalized its history by way of a huge mural restoration project. The town also has not one but two museums – one located inside the 1880 courthouse. Also, the only U.S. highway that connects Canada to Mexico, Highway 62, happens to go right through the courthouse square, providing a big boost to tourism.

Exploring Arkansas Shiloh Museum

The Shiloh Museum of Ozark History takes its name from the pioneer community of Shiloh, which later became Springdale. The museum grounds have six historic buildings in addition to the main exhibit building. Visitors, especially students, get a wonderful opportunity to experience firsthand how everyday folks lived, worked and played.

Exploring Arkansas The White Cliffs Natural Area

The White Cliffs Natural Area – located on the banks of Millwood Lake in Southwest Arkansas – is actually a 100-foot-tall bluff line containing some of the highest grade of chalk found in the United States. A 1.75 mile nature trail takes you to several overlooks of the lake.

Exploring Arkansas Daisy Airgun Museum

The Daisy Airgun Museum in Rogers is quite the impressive collection telling the story that turned a boyhood favorite toy into a tradition that eventually became a part of America’s heritage – not to mention the 1983 movie classic “A Christmas Story” — and the Red Ryder model air rifle, which was and still is the world’s best-known BB gun. Just don’t, “shoot your eye out!” See it all Wednesday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m.
