Eddie G. Robinson Museum
The Eddie G. Robinson Museum is a landmark that officially recognizes the outstanding contributions to the state of Louisiana, the nation, the world and the game of football made by Coach Eddie G. Robinson.
Coach Robinson spent 57 seasons consistently fielding stellar football teams and guiding his young charges to successful lives both on and off the gridiron. His earned an unprecedented 408 college football victories to set the NCAA’s benchmark for wins in Division I. Coach Robinson retired with an overall record of 408 wins, 165 losses, and 15 ties.
The Dixie Center for the Arts began as the “New Astor Theatre” debuting silent films in 1928 and evolved into a live performance venue by 1990's. On October 14, 1993, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places, a distinction held by only a few buildings in Downtown Ruston. By 1994 however, the theatre was in great disrepair, and much out-of-date with current fire and building safety code and the Fire Marshall shut it down. A group of caring locals refused to let the Dixie die so in 1996, the Dixie Center for the Arts came together for their first meeting, and began crafting a vision for the restoration of the cultural landmark. In 2006 the renewed “Dixie Theatre” opened its doors to the world, with the goal of being a rallying point and home for the arts in Ruston, and north Louisiana.
Located in downtown Ruston, we provide consulting services to artists, private and corporate collectors, and first time art buyers. Our event venue offers the opportunity to experience and celebrate all of the arts including: culinary, entertaining, fashion, film, literature, media, music, and performance.
