Crawford County Chronicles Returns for 2024 Season

Written By: Rachel Putman

The Crawford County Chronicles will launch its 2024 season on Sunday, May 5, at 2 p.m., featuring a 19th-century music performance led by Dr. Alexandra Zacharella, a University of Arkansas – Fort Smith music professor, and her students. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the historic Drennen-Scott House.

Tom Wing, director of the Drennen-Scott Historic Site and assistant professor of history at UAFS, will collaborate with Zacharella to provide historical insights into the music of the era. “We are very excited to have Dr. Zacharella and her students for our first program of the year," said Wing. "Sharing historical music in the context in which Drennen-Scott enjoyed its golden era enriches us all. A chance to feature UAFS faculty and students is a win as well.”

Now in its 13th year, the Crawford County Chronicles began in 2011 as a monthly lecture series held on the first Sunday of each month. The program has since showcased a diverse range of scholars, authors, musical guests, and experts in Arkansas history, preservation, and heritage.
