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, hands-on children’s activities in the galleries and the Friends’ Gift Shopt. 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.
