Donation to museum

St. Francis County Museum employee Wilma Taylor sets up measuring units in front of a scale recently donated to the museum. The scale, donated by Kenneth Powell, of Jonesboro, sat in the courtroom in the old St. Francis County Courthouse and was used in settling cases. It has since spent many years as a window display in Powell’s pharmacy in Jonesboro. The accompanying measurement set is a complete set of standard units and has been collected from various people. The artifacts were among several the SFC Museum Board moved to assess during its regular meeting Tuesday night. Photo by Caitlyn Sweet.
