Shiloh Museum Of Ozark History

Shiloh Museum Of Ozark History

The Shiloh Museum tells the story of pioneer men, women and children through a variety of exhibits on native peoples, pioneers, the Civil War, the fruit and timber industries, and traditional folklife. Activities at the museum include a working grindstone, the ability to try on old-time clothing, folk music and more. Along with exhibits, six historic buildings on the museum grounds are available for touring, including a log cabin, a barn, and a town home of the 1940s. Shaded walking paths and picnic tables offer a chance to relax and remember a time when life moved at a slower pace. The Shiloh Museum also houses a research library with an extensive collection of over 700,000 photographs of Ozark life.

We hope you enjoy our work.
