The exhibit will feature memorabilia such as photographs, documents, and other items.  The museum has a collection of many items but to expand the exhibit, the public is invited to include any relevant items in their possession.  This will be on a loan basis and not a permanent donation.  Oral histories can be submitted as well.

For more information please call 259-3119, or email Updates will be available through our website,, and our regular operating hours are Thursday-Saturday, 10am-4pm. 


The Jackson Parish Museum & Fine Arts Association, located in Jonesboro, Louisiana, serves the citizens of our area by preserving the history of Jackson Parish and the Jimmie Davis legacy, through the collection and exhibition of local artifacts, Davis memorabilia, and fine art pieces by Louisiana artists.

The museum also serves as a facility for teaching arts, crafts, and skills pertaining to the history of the parish, with rental opportunities available for fine art and social events.

Each year, the JPMFAA enhances the community by providing exhibits, programs and performances in all of the artistic fields. Local and tourist involvement are encouraged; plan your visit to the Sunshine Parish today!
