The Arkansas State Archives has delved into Arkansas history with new educational videos and jigsaw puzzle games!

Join Dr. David Ware, state historian, and Julienne Crawford, curator, as they discuss historic collections at the Archives. Lean about Arkansas’s first State Flag, historical maps, history captured in scrapbooks and more. View them all, then let us know what you think!

Online puzzes using historical Arkansas State Archives
materials are now available.
Besides videos, we're are creating weekly, online puzzles to engage our patrons! We use our historical materials, including vintage postcards and artworks, to create jigsaw puzzles to entertain and educate.

Stay at home and still be immersed in Arkansas history! Every week, staff add a new puzzle, which can be found on our blog, Facebook page or the JigsawPlanet website. The difficulty levels of the puzzles can be adjusted.

And, of course, we continue to offer online services, including some research services and digital collections. Visit us at
