North Mock Street District Listed on National Register of Historic Places

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Wednesday, June 27, 2018

The North Mock Street Historic District at Prairie Grove in Washington County has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the country’s official list of historically significant properties.

The North Mock Street Historic District features a pair of turn-of-the-century commercial buildings.

“The earliest commercial building within the district was constructed in 1903,” according to the National Register nomination. “It is assumed that local builders constructed these early twentieth-century buildings with regionally quarried stone and manufactured brick. Only one reference to the Terpening Brick and Drain Tile Factory was discovered during research and conversation with residents. Local vernacular interpretations of the Twentieth Century Standard Commercial style were incorporated in the construction of Prairie Grove’s commercial blocks. Most distinguishable are the Mesker Brothers Company pressed-metal building facades on both buildings.”
