LITTLE ROCK—The State Review Board of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program will consider nine Arkansas properties in six counties for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places when it meets at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 2, at the Department of Arkansas Heritage Building at 1100 North Street in Little Rock.

Properties to be considered for National Register nomination are:

* Jewell Bain House #4 at Pine Bluff in Jefferson County

* Arkansas Research Test Station near Caddo Gap in Montgomery County

The board will also consider the Bush House at Hot Springs in Garland County, Linwood Cemetery at Paragould in Greene County, and the YWCA Building, Memorial Stadium and American Legion Building-TAC House at El Dorado in Union County for listing on the Arkansas Register of Historic Places.
