Historic Dyess Colony Heritage Site Featured in DTN Progressive Farmer

The Historic Dyess Colony heritage site, which is maintained by Arkansas State University (ASU) was featured in the January issue of DTN Progressive Farmer. The site offers a great deal of history into agriculture, American music, and New Deal era programs. The location was part of a Works Progress Administration (WPA) initiative put in place by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to develop a subsistence farming community that happened to house American music icon Johnny Cash in his boyhood years.

The heritage site is open Monday – Saturday from 9:00 A.M – 3:00 P.M. with tours of the house given on the hour
