Sandwiching in History to Tour Acme Brick Building

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Friday, July 21, 2017

LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit the Acme Brick Building at 301 South Victory Street in Little Rock beginning at noon on Friday, August 4.

The Acme Brick Building was designed by the firm of Ehrhart, Eichenbaum & Rauch and was constructed in 1958. That is the firm that is responsible for buildings such as Beaux-Arts Parnell Hall at Arkansas School for the Deaf (1931), the Art Moderne-style Arkansas State Tuberculosis Sanitarium in Booneville (1938), and the original International-style St. Vincent's Hospital (1958) at the corner of University and Markham in Little Rock. The Acme Brick Building was designed to serve as the showroom for the various products that Acme Brick had to offer. Acme stayed in the building until 1996 when they sold it to the state for offices. Various organizations have been housed in the building since then, most recently the Arkansas Asphalt Pavement Association.

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. The American Institute of Architects offers one HSW continuing education learning unit credit for members who attend a “Sandwiching in History” tour.

Other 2017 “Sandwiching in History” tours will be held September 1, Park Hill Fire Station and Water Company Complex, 3417-3421 Magnolia Street, North Little Rock; October 6, Gustave Kleinschmidt House, 621 East 16th Street, Little Rock; November 3, Pulaski County Courthouse, 401 West Markham Street, Little Rock, and December 1, Little Rock City Hall, 500 West Markham Street, Little Rock.
