Welcome to the Little Italy Arkansas Heritage Society and Museum


The Little Italy Heritage Society has established a museum which documents and preserves the community’s history for generations to come. The Museum is a collaborative effort between descendants of the area’s founding families. The Museum curators have developed exhibition themes which will utilize the interpretation of historic images, artifacts related to the founding Italian families, and portions of oral histories to weave a narrative of Little Italy’s history. 

Click here for a PowerPoint presentation which illustrates the focus on the museum’s exhibitions. 

Opportunities exist for sponsorship of the Museum’s galleries in honor of the area’s founding families.

The Museum is always in need of historic artifacts or photos related to the history of Little Italy. If you have anything you believe would be beneficial to the Museum’s mission, you can share it with us in two ways: 

  1. One can transfer ownership of the item to the museum (Artifact Donation Form below) or 
  2. Lend the item to the Museum for a period of time (Artifact Lending Form below)

The Little Italy Arkansas Heritage Society is a 501c(3) organization, all donations are tax deductible
