The Arkansas Country Doctor Museum preserves and celebrates the history of health care in rural America and of the people who served their fellow man by providing that health care. Housed in a building which served as the home of three doctors and as primary clinic for the small town of Lincoln, Arkansas, from 1936 to 1973, the museum presents the life of a small town doctor and the history of medicine as it was practiced in the early 20th century.
Plan Your Visit to the Arkansas Country Doctor Museum
The Arkansas Country Doctor Museum is located in Lincoln, Arkansas, just west of Prairie Grove and Fayetteville on Highway 62. We’re open on Wednesday through Saturday afternoons from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., so you are welcome to visit on those days as part of your trip to Northwest Arkansas. You can also make an appointment to visit at other times by calling 479-824-4307. The museum includes many exhibits both indoors and out, so plan to spend an hour or more exploring.
Our staff will also be happy to assist with academic or genealogical research. Please contact us before you visit if you would like to explore the additional information we have on hundreds of Arkansas doctors and medical facilities, so we can gather the information for you prior to your visit.
We will also work with you online to send information to you if you cannot visit the museum.
