Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Monday, July 02, 2018

The Prairie Grove Commercial 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 Prairie Grove Commercial Historic District, located between 107 and 305 East Buchanan and 123 South Neal Street, includes buildings dating to 1883.

“The development of this district reflects local and regional commercial development trends as reflected in the early period of Prairie Grove’s history during its heyday of canning factories, fruit orchards, poultry and livestock production, and lumber mills that has evolved to remain a vibrant commercial city offering opportunities to dine, bank, and participate in religious and civic activities, as well as offerings available in the local library and museum, multiple antique shops, a clothing store, art galleries, specialty stores, auto shops, drug stores, and a bakery,” according to the National Register nomination.

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 Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the Historic Arkansas Museum and the Arkansas State Archives.
