A huge crowd was in attendance on Thursday to mark the grand opening of the Northeast Arkansas Regional Archives in Powhatan.

Located on the grounds of the Powhatan Historic State Park, the facility came to be through a collaboration between Arkansas State Parks and the Arkansas History Commission, with assistance from the Lawrence County Historical Society.

For members of the Lawrence County Historical Society, it represented a long-awaited homecoming for records that have been in the society's care for many years.

"We were just thrilled that after many years of frustration it's finally a reality and the records are available to the public again," Lloyd Clark, LCHS president said.
