The mission of the Ella Sharp Museum is to provide opportunities for everyone to explore, engage in, and enjoy history and the arts. The Ella Sharp Museum opened in 1965 in the 19th century home of Ella Merriman-Sharp. The Hadwin Center connects seven galleries, which feature changing exhibits of art and Jackson history, and hands-on children's activities in the galleries. In addition to touring the elegantly furnished Victorian home, visitors to the Museum may visit a one-room schoolhouse, an authentic log cabin, and other historical buildings.
