The old saying goes something like this...."the times they are a changing", and for the next 7 weeks, the History Museum for springfield/Greene County will showcase and exhibit that highlights a curtural history that's new to the Ozarks. Mike Smith has the story:

Since it first opened its doors in 1976, the History Museum for Springfield/Greene County has been host for countless exhibits highlighting the history of the Ozarks, and according to Exectutive Director Michal Dale, through February 26th the museum will showcase its latest exhibit titled "A Celebration of Our Hispanic Culture".

Dale says "A Celebration of Our hispanic Culture" is a collaborative exhibit between Groupo Latino Americano, Springfield's Sister City Tahlaquepaque Mexico, and SMSU Assistant Professor of Art History Dr. Billie Follensbee.

The History Museum for springfield/Greene County is located on the 3rd floor of Historic City Hall, at the corner of Booneville and Chestnut Expressway. The museum is open to the public from 10:30AM-4:30PM Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free, but donations will always be accepted.
