LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit the National Old Line Building at 501 Woodlane Street in Little Rock at noon on Friday, August 3.

The National Old Line Building is regarded as the largest and best example of International-style architecture in the state of Arkansas. Designed by architect Yandell Johnson, the National Old Line Insurance Building was built in 1955 with an addition in 1965. Once home to Arkansas’s former governor Winthrop Rockefeller, the National Old Line Insurance Building stands as an icon of Modern architecture in the capital city.

Participants are encouraged to bring their lunches with them.
