LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s first “Sandwiching in History” tour of 2015 will visit Little Rock Fire Station No. 2 at 1201 S. Commerce Street on January 9, AHPP Director Frances McSwain announced today.

Located in the MacArthur Park Historic District, Little Rock Fire Station No. 2 was built in 1917 and served as a fire station until the late 1950s. The Craftsman-style building was constructed with a mixture of materials. It features exposed rafter tails, false half-timbering, and triangular knee braces under the eaves. The old firehouse is currently being converted into a 30-bed hostel and museum.
