Rick Parker from Parker Conservation explains the process it took to restore the Dixieland House painting Friday, March 29, 2013, at 120 W. Walnut St. in Rogers during Finders Keepers' first meeting of the year. The painting, owned by the Rogers Historical Museum, is believed to have been painting in the early 20th century. The painting is of a house which used to be located at West Walnut Street and North Dixieland Road in Rogers.

A tightly rolled oil painting on canvas that depicts a bit of the city’s history has been restored.
