Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Monday, March 23, 2015

LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit the Lynch Apartments at 523 Orange Street in North Little Rock on April 3, AHPP Director Frances McSwain announced today.

Located in the Argenta Historic District, the Craftsman-style Lynch Apartments were built in 1926 by Jimmy and Theresa Lynch. The ten-unit apartment building catered to local railroad and mill employees. The Lynch Apartments were recently restored with the help of federal and state historic rehabilitation tax credits. The building again provides ten rental units in the heart of downtown North Little Rock.

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. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunches with them.

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