The Ella Sharp Museum opened in 1965 in the 19th century home of Ella Merriman Sharp. Ella willed her 530 acre property to the city of Jackson in 1912, with the understanding that a park and museum be developed for all to enjoy.

The Hadwin Center connects six galleries, which feature changing exhibits of art and Jackson history, a hands-on children’s gallery, the Friends’ Gift Shop, and Ella’s Granary restaurant. 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.
