Lisa Perry, archival manager at the newly-opened Northeast Arkansas Regional Archives, shared that the facility has been busy serving patrons in its first few weeks of operation. A grand opening for the archives was held March 3.

"Although most of our visitors are from Arkansas, we have had visitors from many different states," Perry said. "To date we have had visitors from Ohio, Louisiana, Texas, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida, Illinois and Michigan."
