State Review Board to Meet

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Monday, March 09, 2020


Arkansas Historic Preservation Program announces a public meeting of the State Review Board at 10 a.m. April 1, 2020 at Arkansas Heritage at 1100 North Street, Little Rock. The meeting will focus on properties being proposed for the National Register of Historic Places as well as delisting several properties.  

Properties proposed for delisting include:

Mary H. Matthews Lustron House, located with a Certified Local Government (CLG), Little Rock (Pulaski County)

Highway 79 Bridge, Clarendon (Monroe County)

Maxie Theatre, Trumann (Poinsett County)

A property may be delisted when a structure is physically moved or destroyed, such as the case of the removal of the Highway 79 Bridge. An owner may wish to do non-historical renovations to the exterior of the building and change the building’s character, which may prompt a delisting.

The board will address a proposed move of the Latimore Tourist Home, located with a CLG, in Russellville (Pope County). In order for the property to remain listed, the physical move of the structure must be approved by the National Park Service, which oversees the National Register.

Properties being proposed for National Register of Historic Places listings include:

Boy Scouts of America Building, located with a CLG, Little Rock (Pulaski County)

International Harvester Servicenter, located with a CLG, Benton (Saline County)

Prescott & Northwestern Railroad Caboose #3, Prescott (Nevada County)

Snowball Gymnasium, Snowball (Searcy County)

Frank and Eva Barnes “Granny” Henderson Farm, Compton vicinity (Newton County)

Flowers Cabin, Compton vicinity (Newton County)

Galatia Church, Norfork (Baxter County)

Mashburn House, located with a CLG, Fayetteville (Washington County)

Fair Park Golf Course, located with a CLG, Little Rock, Pulaski County

Hindman Hall, Prairie Grove (Washington County)
