About Our Auction
The St. Francis County Museum online auction is to raise funds to support our local museum which showcases the history of St. Francis County in the historic Rush-Gates Home in Forrest City, Arkansas. The museum is free to the public and is filled with artifacts from our rich Native American history, the beginnings of the area as it has grown, changed and developed into the wonderful place we all call home. We specifically are looking to develop our oral history and these funds will assist in that goal.
