“The modern era in northwest Arkansas can be summed up in two words: ‘growth’ and ‘change.’ The exhibit takes a look at the
driving forces behind that growth and change: Beaver Lake, the rise of the poultry, retail, transportation, and tourism industries, and the University of Arkansas,” said Susan Young, museum outreach coordinator and curator of the exhibit.
