The mission of the Ella Sharp Museum is to provide opportunities for everyone to explore, engage in, and enjoy history and the arts.

 

WHO IS ELLA SHARP?

Ella (Merriman) Sharp was a resident of Jackson who lived from 1857 to 1912. A generous, civic-minded individual, she left her estate, Hillside Farm, and her home, the Merriman-Sharp Farmhouse, to the city of Jackson for use as a park and a museum. Today visitors can enjoy Ella’s gift in a number of ways.
