Three Arkansas Properties Listed on National Register of Historic Places

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Wednesday, February 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:

* Sherman Mound and Village in Mississippi County, a ca. 1200 archeological site with components from the Prehistoric Late Woodland and Middle Mississippian periods. “Geophysics produced evidence for the presence of all the basic architectural design elements of a Mississippian town with a mound-and-plaza complex, including: a primary mound; two secondary mounds (B and C); one or two plazas; a palisade wall with bastions; and discrete residential or habitation areas characterized by multiple geophysical features and surface artifact concentrations,” according to the National Register nomination. “The most conspicuous remaining element of this Mississippian town is the Sherman Mound, which is one of the largest and best-preserved Middle Mississippian period earthworks in the Central Mississippi Valley.”

* Arkansas Teachers Association Headquarters Building and Professional Services Building at Little Rock in Pulaski County, Mid-Century Modern-style buildings completed in 1965 and designed by the architectural firm of George Henry Tschiemer & Associates of Pine Bluff. “The two buildings designed for the ATA and the medical corporation Professional Services, Inc., were contemporary in style, featuring the mid-century modern aesthetic of simple lines and un-ornamented facades,” according to the National Register nomination. “While the modern aesthetic was partially a result of the use of new and cost-efficient materials and building techniques; the modern styling of the structures was also a reflection of the forward thinking organizations that commissioned the buildings. The overall cost of the project was over $150,000, a huge sum, especially for an African-American financed and constructed project in downtown Little Rock only five years after the Little Rock Desegregation Crisis.”
