Bringing Our Community Together

What We Do


The Heritage and Visitor Center is the centerpiece of what we do.  The Calico Rock Community Foundation supports and manages the museum.  


The Tomlinson Art & Science Center  contains an impressive collection of American art and science exhibits that engage our visitors.  The Foundation supports and manages the art and science center.  


 The Calico Rock Community Foundation publishes the Explore magazine, manages the Visitor Information Radio Station, and operates 


Volunteers with the Storybook Project go into the North Central Unit of the Arkansas Department of Corrections to record inmates reading a book.  The recordings and book are then sent to their children or grandchildren.


The Bridges program provides nonperishable food and meets essential needs of students at Calico Rock Elementary School.  The program supplies 40-50 backpacks every week!


The Calico Rock Community Foundation will soon host a low-watt Visitor Information Radio Station to provide our travelers with important information about their visit to Calico Rock.
