With the official grand opening less than a month away, tickets are available for opening day tours of the Johnny Cash Boyhood Home.
The opening for Arkansas State University’s newest Heritage Site is set for Saturday, Aug. 16, and gets underway with a Dedication Ceremony at 10 a.m. at the Dyess Colony Administration Building. The ceremony itself is free and open to the public and features special remarks by the Cash family.
It will be followed by concessions, free entertainment, and complimentary access to Administration Building exhibits from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Exhibits are related to establishment of the Dyess colony, lifestyles of typical colonists, and the impact that growing up in Dyess had on Johnny Cash and his music.
