Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Tuesday, August 07, 2018


Three Arkansas properties have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the country’s official list of historically significant properties.

The newly listed properties are:

* Goodwin Field Administration Building at El Dorado in Union County, a ca. 1950 structure with a design that reflects the transition of the Art Deco style toward the International style of architecture. “The Goodwin Field Administration Building used cast concrete in its construction as architect John B. Abbott utilized this method in four local buildings and structures over a four-year period, bringing architectural modernity to Union County,” according to the National Register nomination. “The Goodwin Field Administration Building exhibits many characteristics of the Art Moderne and International styles, including smooth exterior walls with minimal ornamentation, flat roofs, rounded edges, wraparound large windows, glass blocks, and nautical elements.”

* Cleveland Arms Apartment Building at Hot Springs in Garland County, a ca. 1945 structure designed in the Art Moderne style of architecture, “The Cleveland Arms Apartment Building was one of two sister-apartment complexes built by Hot Springs insurance and real estate man Thomas H. Cleveland after the second World War with Federal Housing Authority loans,” according to the National Register nomination. “The two buildings were designed as complimentary Art Moderne style buff-brick structures with Art Deco detailing by local architect Irven Donald McDaniel.”

* The building at 234 Ouachita Avenue at Hot Springs in Garland County, a simple commercial building constructed in 1920 and located in the Ouachita Avenue Historic District. “In the original nomination for the Ouachita Avenue Historic District, the Building at 234 Ouachita Avenue was considered to be non-contributing to the District due to the installation of stucco over the original brick,” according to the National Register nomination. “However, the building should now be considered to be a contributing resource.A recent project renovated the property, which included removing the stucco and restoring the property’s original material on the front façade.As a result, the building is considered to be a contributing resource in the Ouachita Avenue Historic District.”

The AHPP is the Department of Arkansas Heritage division responsible for identifying, evaluating, registering and preserving the state’s cultural resources. Other divisions are the Arkansas Arts Council, the Delta Cultural Center in Helena, the Old State House Museum, the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the Historic Arkansas Museum and the Arkansas State Archives.
