Eddie Mae Herron Center

1708 Archer Street
Pocahontas, AR 72455

870-892-4433

 

The Eddie Mae Herron Center is many things: a museum, an education center, a community center, a heritage and culture center. The Center preserves and displays a portion of nearly two hundred years of African American history in Randolph County, Arkansas. Through photographs, displays, books and the spoken memories of the people who grew up around the old building and now care for it, the Center works to tell the story of the African American past in the county, preserving that heritage for future generations of the local African-American community and the county as a whole.

Serving as a great source of pride for the people who grew up worshiping and attending school in the old building, the Center works as an active community center, with regular planned events to bring people together for fun, for fellowship, and for education.
