We envision the current heritage center to be re-imagined as The Marketplace.  This space will be an incubator for small business.  Anyone that's ever dreamed over opening their own retail store, but never had the money to buy or rent a building or hire a staff or quit their job, can finally make their dreams come true.  Our concept is similar to our highly successful Artisan Gift Shop.  The only investment for your new idea will be the merchandise you intend to sell.  We'll handle the rest and pay you on consignment every month for the merchandise that sold.  There's no rental fees, no employment costs, just a modest consignment percentage.

A new vision for the Calico Rock Museum & Visitor Center

The Calico Rock Community Foundation is purchasing two historic properties on lower Main Street that are connected to the Tomlinson Art & Science Center.  Our vision is to unite these historic properties into one center that combines our history, art, science, visitor center, and Artisan Gift Shop under one roof.

Phase 2: June 2020

(if funding allows)

We've gutted the building, which is now a blank slate ready for work to begin.  Our first concern is shoring up the support for the roof and making sure we have a roof that will prepare us for the future.


We are currently raising money to work on the roof.  We need your help. 


Needed to Complete Support & Roof: $10,000


Please give generously today.
