The Adkins Historical and Museum Complex, Inc. was created and developed in 1980 by J. Howard and Louise Adkins.  Their dedication to "preserving the past" allow us to turn back time more than a century and get a glimpse into life in the village of Barren Creek Springs.

It is our policy to continue the work they began and further the cultural and educational interests of the people of the area.  We present our proud heritage through our collections, buildings, and activities that exhibit the environmental and cultural richness of the region.

Ten historical buildings and a privy are open for free tours by appointment.  Various collections are exhibited from time to time.  See our tours page to schedule an appointment.
