FAULKNER COUNTY AR -- Housed in a building first constructed nearly 120 years ago is the history that's brought Faulkner County forward from the 19th century to now. Faulkner County museum director Lynita Langley-Ware has dedicated her days for 13 of the museums 22 years. The organization has collected bit of the area's history ever since. "Everything in this building has a story," she said.

From the cotton crop generations, and the soda fountain years, to the people and places that have called Faulkner County home. There's an endless list of pieces of artifacts and culture that has made area what it is today. Even the walls the pictures and displays hang from have their own distinct history. Originally constructed as the Faulkner County jail and then rehabilitated in the late 1930's as a library and then became what it is today.

Whether you're just driving through or have called it home for years, here you'll find things that are only in Arkansas. "That is all part of our history and I think it's a very rich and colorful history that we should be proud of," Langley-Ware said.
