The Rogers Historical Museum serves the community through:

  • educating the public about the history and traditions of Rogers and the surrounding area of Northwest Arkansas;
  • preserving our local heritage through research and by collecting and caring for materials that reflect and document the connections between our past and the present and between our area and the nation;
  • providing enriching and enjoyable experiences for all; and
  • partnering with our neighbors to foster an appreciation of the Rogers area and to encourage investment in its future.

One major aspect of the museum's permanent collection is "flat textiles, quilts, costumes, and accessories, characterizing both typical and unique examples of Victorian fashion and industry, many of which were made or used locally (in Arkansas)."
