The Harold Bell Wright Museum, the municipal museum in Pierce City, has reopened for 2012.

The Harold Bell Wright exhibit has been enhanced with issues of McCall's magazine featuring stories by the famous novelist who preached in Pierce City. An original beaver-skin hat sold as a promotional item for the film "Smokey and the Bandit" from 1977, like the one Burt Reynolds wore, is among the new displays.

The museum is located at 404 N. Walnut St. in Pierce City and is open from 1:30 to 4 p.m. on Thursdays and Saturdays.
