Sandwiching in History to Visit White-Baucum House


 LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit White-Baucum House at 201 S. Izard Street in Little Rock on October 2, AHPP Director Frances McSwain announced today.

This Italianate-style house was built in 1869-1870 for Robert J. T. White, then-Arkansas secretary of state, and was enlarged in the mid-1870s by its second owner, businessman George F. Baucum. The White-Baucum House was recently rehabilitated using federal and state tax incentives to serve as office space.

The “Sandwiching in History” tour series targets Pulaski County structures and sites. The noontime series includes a brief lecture and tour of the subject property. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunches with them. The American Institute of Architects offers one HSW continuing education learning unit credit for members who attend a “Sandwiching in History” tour.

Other 2015 “Sandwiching in History” tours will be held November 6, Thomas M. Clifton House, 1423 South Summit Street, Little Rock; and December 4, Albert Pike Memorial Temple, 712 Scott Street, Little Rock.

All tours are free and open to the public. For information, call the AHPP at (501) 324-9880, write the agency at 323 Center St., Suite 1500, Little Rock, AR 72201, send an e-mail message to [email protected], or visit
