JONESBORO — Arkansas State University’s Heritage Sites locations are planning to reopen with limited tours available beginning Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Each site will open with a reduced tour schedule. The schedules vary, so Heritage Sites is posting each site’s hours on its website,, and its Facebook page.

Dr. Adam Long, executive director, said it will be necessary to limit groups to eight people.

“Because of the limited group size and reduced schedule, we strongly encourage guests to call ahead for reservations,” Long said. “Reservations are not required, but we do not have an indoor waiting area for guests.”

The Heritage Sites staff will be wearing face coverings and taking other steps to help ensure a safe touring experience. Guests also will be required to wear face coverings.

“We are excited to welcome guests back to the sites, but we are also looking forward to new ways to engage with guests and students virtually,” Long added.
