The Dyess Colony Museum and Johnny Cash's restored boyhood home will be open for visitors tomorrow after a restoration project that began in early 2012. 

The Dyess Colony was created by the New Deal in 1934 as a community for farm families struggling during the Great Depression. Johnny Cash's family moved to the community in 1935. Check out our story on the Dyess Colony and the restoration project from a few years back. There will be exhibits on the colony and its impact on Cash and his music. His boyhood home is restored and furnished as it was when the Cash family lived there. 

Tours are $10 per person, more info here

Photographer Kat Robinson got a sneak preview last May and did a big post on her blog. The Encyclopedia of Arkansas has lots more on the Dyess Colony.
