'Sandwiching in History' to Visit Park Hill Complex

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Friday, August 18, 2017

LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit the Park Hill Fire Station and Water Company Complex at 3417-3421 Magnolia Street in North Little Rock beginning at noon on Friday, September 1.

The Park Hill Fire Station and Water Company Complex consists of a fire station, a water company office, two concrete reservoirs, and two stone pump houses, all built in 1938 with funding support from the Works Progress Administration. The fire station and water company office are distinguished by their fieldstone exteriors and Mediterranean style, including red-tile roofs. They were designed by the Little Rock firm of Brueggeman, Swaim and Allen. Now owned by the City of North Little Rock, this historic complex remains an important landmark in the Park Hill neighborhood. It was added to the National Register on November 19, 1993.

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 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.
