Arab Historic Village

In cooperation with the City of Arab, The Arab Historical Society developed the Historic Village in the City Park as a tribute to the pioneering people who settled and built this area into the prosperous, community-spirited place it is today. Development of the village started in 1991 as a Centennial project of the Historical Society. At the present time, eight building have been completed and are furnished with items from 1880 through the 1940's. See the 1935 Old Hunt School, 1912 Rice Church, Smith's Country store, Elvin Light Museum, Grist Mill, Blacksmith shop and club demonstration home. $5 fee for Christmas in the Village. The Society invites you to visit the Village. During some special events, visitors interact with volunteers performing some of the tasks required of persons of the 1880-1940's era such as quilting, making corn meal in the gristmill and working with iron in the blacksmith shop. Singings and weddings can be held in the Rice Church.
