The Faulkner County Historical Society was organized in April, 1959, with 42 charter members. The purposes of the society included preserving the history of the county through a wide variety of projects and activities, many of which have been joint ventures with the Conway Chamber of Commerce and other organizations interested in our county's heritage. 

 

These have included the following:

  • The publication of a journal, "Faulkner Facts and Fiddlings," with from one to four issues each year.

  • The erection of historical plaques and markers at a dozen historical sites, including the Cadron Settlement Park and the Toad Suck landing on the Arkansas River.

  • The moving of an 18th century log cabin to the courthouse grounds.

  • The publication of "Faulkner County: Its Land and People," a 435-page hardbound volume of articles and photographs on a variety of institutions and families.

  • The publication of a hardbound 912-page book containing a census of 120 Faulkner County cemeteries (as of December 31, 1987).

  • Supporting the development of the Faulkner County Museum, the replica of the Cadron blockhouse, and various programs and exhibits on the history of the county. 

Current membership dues are $15 per calendar year. The FCHS may be contacted by regular mail at P.O. Box 731 Conway, AR 72033
