Tours

Walks through History

The “Walks through History” tour series features historic sites or districts around Arkansas each month. All tours are held on Saturdays and begin at 11:00 a.m., unless otherwise indicated, and last between one and two hours.The Walks Through History tours focus on properties outside of central Arkansas. We choose locations throughout the state primarily focusing on historic districts and groupings of individually listed National Register properties that lie in close proximity to one another. We strive to choose tour locations that have not been previously featured in the Walks series. An AHPP historian delivers a lecture about the properties while leading guests on a walking tour. All tours are free and open to the public. The Walks Through History tours are organized by the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, a division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage and co-sponsored by the Arkansas Humanities Council.
