The museum was the family home of author Robert E. Howard, creator of Conan the Barbarian.

The amateur Robert E. Howard Press Association and the non-profit Robert H. Howard Foundation sponsor an annual event in June to celebrate the author's legacy. The local library extends its hours during the event to make its Howard publications and memorabilia available to the public.
