Three Arkansas Properties Listed on National Register of Historic Places

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Wednesday, September 19, 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:

 

  • Voorhees School at Clarksville in Johnson County, a one-story, native stone building constructed between 1940 and 1941 by the National Youth Administration, a Depression-era federal relief agency. “Though it was originally meant to allow aspiring educators the opportunity to teach ninth graders from the Clarksville Public School system, that systems fell by the way side at the outbreak of World War II,” according to the National Register nomination. “The education value remained as the United States Navy used it as classroom space. Following the Navy’s use of the Voorhees School the College of the Ozarks moved the newly formed School of Pharmacy into the building to create Arkansas’s first pharmacy school. The history associated with this former school building continues to be shown as the University of the Ozarks continues to thrive and continues to use the school to facilitate a learning environment for its students.”

 

 

  • William Jasper Johnson House at Bull Shoals in Marion County, a wood-frame vernacular house built around 1900.“The Johnson House is a typical example of a wood-framed single pen house that was soon expanded through the addition of a rear ell,” according to the National Register nomination. “Its stunning survival without large additions or even the introduction of interior plumbing or electrical service is unusual.Also, this property is one of only two known surviving properties, including the Newton Flat Cemetery, that are associated with the early settlement history of this area, prior to the building of the nearby dam and lake.”

  • Sandlin House at Little Rock in Pulaski County, a Colonial Revival-influenced building constructed around 1900.“In the nomination for the Governor’s Mansion Historic District, the Sandlin House at 2305 South Gaines Street was considered to be non-contributing to the District due to the installation of synthetic siding which had obscured some of the property’s architectural detail,” according to the National Register nomination. “However, the house should now be considered a contributing resource.However, a recent tax credit project removed the siding and has restored the house’s architectural detail. As a result, the building is considered to be a contributing resource in the Governor’s Mansion Historic District.”
