New Date for Sandwiching in History Tour of Dr. Charles H. Kennedy House

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Tuesday, March 20, 2018

The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit the Dr. Charles H. Kennedy House at 6 Edenwood Lane in North Little Rock at noon on Friday, April 13.

The Kennedy House tour was originally scheduled for April 6, but the date had to be changed because of scheduling conflicts.

The Dr. Charles H. Kennedy House at 6 Edenwood Lane in North Little Rock was designed by Arkansas Modernist and early University of Arkansas Architecture Program graduate Warren Segraves. The Kennedy House stands out as a unique design not only for the Little Rock/North Little Rock area but also within the resume of work by Segraves. The Kennedy House was completed in 1964 and one of only four designs by Segraves to be constructed in Central Arkansas. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 21, 2017.

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.
