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.
