The Old State House

The Old State House

The Old State House, formerly called the Arkansas State House, is the oldest surviving state capitol building west of the Mississippi River. It is now the home of the Old State House Museum.

Arkansas DAR Room

Arkansas Daughters are proud of the many years of association with the Old State House. Records show that the Arkansas State Society, DAR, began a preservation project with the Old State House around 1908.

The Arkansas Society DAR operates and maintains the Arkansas Room at the Old State House Museum. The room is a representative of an upper class period room of the 18th Century, Revolutionary War Period. Today we value bringing history alive to those that visit the DAR Room.
