We encourage you to become a member of the Phillips County Historical Society Board. Serving on the board does not require a lot of your time, but does require your commitment to fostering the preservation of the history of Phillips County. Please call any of the board members and chat with us about serving on the Board. Or email us at email@example.com and let us know if you're interesting in joining. We meet the 1st Monday of each month.
Museums ensure understanding and appreciation for people, art, culture and history. They promote better understanding of heritage and foster dialogue, curiosity and self-reflection . Furthermore, they serve to help future generations comprehend their history and recognize the achievements of those who came before them.
Yes, indeed! Museums are both necessary and relevant today. They are the institutions charged with conserving, protecting and displaying artifacts from our past and thus preserving our rich heritage which might otherwise be lost to private collectors or to time itself. Quite simply, without museums we would most certainly lose the tangible links to our past.
