The Jackson Parish Museum and Fine Arts Association welcomed the staff of the Jonesboro Branch of the Jackson Parish Library recently for a guided tour. It was the first of what is hoped to be the first of many tours by the business community and residents of Jackson Parish during the year.

Led by Library Board President Barbara Johnson and dedicated Board members, as well as, many volunteers from the community a tremendous amount of work has been done so that the history of Jackson Parish can now be viewed in a unique, real-life setting. 

“We would like to thank Mrs. Barbara Johnson, President of the Jackson Parish Museum and Fine Arts Association for her generous hospitality while giving our staff a tour of the museum,” said Library Director Floyd Knox. “We look forward to having many partnerships in the future with the museum and highly recommend viewing the wonderful historical finds from Jackson Parish that are available.”

The Museum that is located at 515 Cooper Avenue, just across the street from the Jonesboro First Baptist Church, is now open every Saturday from 9:00am – 1:00pm. Group tours can also be scheduled by calling 31`8-450-5561 or 318-426-6511.
