While the State Capitol Building of Arkansas serves as a house of the state government, the honour previously belonged to the Old State House Museum building. This building was constructed in the early 19th century when Arkansas achieved its statehood. It was constructed in the Greek Revival style of architecture to subtly put an emphasis on the democratic status of the state. After the government houses shifted into the new building, the Old State House served as the location of the Arkansas School of Medical Sciences. This school achieved global recognition for the research done to discover anti-hookworm and malaria experiments. The State House served other purposes like a war memorial, home of the state police and several other organisations. In 1947, the building was made into a museum by a legislation act. Collections here are dedicate to the African-American history of the state, battle flags of the civil War, Clinton’s Presidential campaign, the governors of Arkansas, medicines, maps and even textiles.
