Dr. Michael Linimon of Fort Smith organized a new exhibit at the Fort Smith Museum of History featuring optometry equipment from the late 19th century through the 1970s. Join us for an opening reception on Saturday, November 18, 2:00-4:00 pm. 

The collection was acquired in 1968 when Dr. Linimon returned from Vietnam and purchased the practice from Dr. William Wood of Fort Smith. Dr. Wood first practiced in an office in the Boston Store in the 1930s and later in an office in First National Bank on Garrison Avenue. The 19th century equipment belonged to Dr. J. H. Chapman, Ophthalmologist. Dr. Linimon will offer programs for students and tour groups.

The opening reception is included with museum admission: $7 adults; $5 veterans and military; $2 children; under age 6 are free.
