About Hopkins County Museum and Heritage Park
The park contains a collection of buildings including a working blacksmith shop, grist mill, chapel, print shop, and country store. It is also the site of three annual events. The Folk Festival is held on the second weekend in May, and Indian Summer on the first Saturday in October, both of which celebrate the community's heritage with demonstrations of how its ancestors lived, worked, and provided the necessities of life. Christmas in the Park is a holiday celebration in the style of the 19th century. The Museum houses collections of unique folk art, memorabilia from the War Between the States, Caddo Indian artifacts, and fossils from the Paleolithic Era, including one almost complete skeleton.
