Sulphur Springs: Southwest Dairy Museum and Education Center

Hopkins County is one of the state’s top-producing dairy counties. That heritage is touted at the Southwest Dairy and Education Center. Housed in a modern, 10,000-square-foot, dairy-barn style complex, the center preserves the artifacts and memorabilia of the pre-electrification dairy industry. An old-fashioned soda fountain offers lunches, malts, milk shakes and sundaes.
