Expanded Governors Mansion Historic District Listed on National Register of Historic Places

LITTLE ROCK—An expansion of the Governor’s Mansion Historic District at Little Rock in Pulaski County has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the country’s official list of historically significant properties.

The expanded Governor’s Mansion Historic District is now bounded by the Mansion Grounds, 13th, Center, Gaines and 18th streets and recognizes buildings constructed as late as 1965. The district was originally listed in 1978 and had previous expansions in 1988 and 2002.

“In the expanded area, the modern era is represented by 29 resources that date from 1940 to 1965, reflecting the continued investment that was placed in the Governor’s Mansion Historic District during the period,” according to the National Register nomination. “As a result of this period, a number of American Small House (Minimal Traditional) and Ranch house forms were added to the area, serving as affordable and efficient constructions in a post-World War II world that valued different modes of construction. It was also during this period that many of the dwellings in the district, as amended, took on their final forms, characterized by nominal material changes and functional additions that reflect mid twentieth century residency and adaptation.”
