First 2018 Walks Through History Tour to Visit Fayetteville's Mount Nord

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Friday, February 23, 2018

The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s first “Walks Through History” tour of 2018 will visit the Mount Nord Historic District in Fayetteville at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 10.

Occupying a single hilltop block in Fayetteville, the Mount Nord Historic District features five buildings that record American “high-style” tastes in the early twentieth century. With construction dates ranging from around 1901 to 1925, the houses reflect the Classical Revival, Colonial Revival, Italianate and Beaux Arts styles of architecture. The tour will begin at the corner of West Mount Nord Street and North Mock Avenue. It is co-sponsored by the Washington County Historical Society and the Arkansas Humanities Council.

In the “Walks Through History” program, which is co-sponsored by the Arkansas Humanities Council, AHPP historians provide free guided walking tours of historic structures and districts across Arkansas. Most tours begin at 11 a.m. on Saturdays.

The American Institute of Architects offers two HSW continuing education learning unit credits for members who attend a “Walks Through History” tour.

Other 2018 “Walks Through History” tours will be held April 14, Columbia Street, Helena-West Helena, sponsored by Main Street Helena; May 12, Downtown Beebe, co-sponsored by the White County Historical Society; September 15, Downtown Osceola, co-sponsored by the Mississippi County Historical Society and Mississippi County Museum; October 13, Heber Springs Commercial Historic District, co-sponsored by the Heber Springs Library and Downtown Heber Springs Network, and November 10, Magnolia Commercial Historic District, co-sponsored by the Magnolia-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce.

All tours are free and open to the public.

The “Walks Through History” program is co-sponsored by the Arkansas Humanities Council, which seeks to promote the understanding, appreciation, and use of the humanities in Arkansas. The humanities include the study of history, literature, ethics, philosophy, language, and the various legal, cultural, religious, and folk traditions – past and present - that define the human condition.

The AHPP is the Department of Arkansas Heritage division responsible for identifying, evaluating, registering and preserving the state’s cultural resources. Other divisions are the Arkansas Arts Council, the Delta Cultural Center in Helena, the Old State House Museum, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission and the Historic Arkansas Museum.
