Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Thursday, April 21, 2016

LITTLE ROCK–In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act, the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program is offering a free poster of the Greyhound Bus Station in Blytheville, AHPP Director Frances McSwain announced today.

The poster highlights the Greyhound Bus Station at 109 Fifth Street in Blytheville, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 17, 1987. The ca. 1937 building was constructed around 1937 and is a great example of the Art Moderne style of architecture, as well as being the sole remaining example in the state of the Greyhound Company’s signature station design. The Greyhound Bus Station is also a stamping station in the AHPP’s National Register Passport program.

The AHPP will offer other posters throughout the year in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.

To get a free poster, write to AHPP Posters, AHPP, 323 Center Street, Suite 1500, Little Rock, AR 72201, call (501) 324-9880, or send an email to [email protected]. Posters are limited to the first 200 people to request them, and please allow four to six weeks for delivery.
