Walks Through History to Visit Downtown Osceola

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Thursday, August 30, 2018

The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Walks Through History” tour will visit downtown Osceola beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 15.

Osceola’s commercial downtown area, which includes the Hale Avenue Historic District and six buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, contains examples of several architectural styles that reflect the great prosperity this Delta town experienced in the early twentieth century. The tour will begin at Mississippi County Courthouse. It is co-sponsored by the Mississippi County Historical Society and Mississippi County Museum and the Arkansas Humanities Council.

In the “Walks Through History” program, which is co-sponsored by the Arkansas Humanities Council, AHPP historians provide free guided walking tours of historic structures and districts across Arkansas. Most tours begin at 11 a.m. on Saturdays.

The American Institute of Architects offers two HSW continuing education learning unit credits for members who attend a “Walks Through History” tour.

Other 2018 “Walks Through History” tours will be held October 13, Heber Springs Commercial Historic District, co-sponsored by the Heber Springs Library and Downtown Heber Springs Network, and November 10, Magnolia Commercial Historic District, co-sponsored by the Magnolia-Columbia County Chamber of Commerce.

All tours are free and open to the public. For information, call the AHPP at (501) 324-9880, write the agency at 1100 North Street, Little Rock, AR 72201, send an e-mail message to [email protected], or visit www.arkansaspreservation.org. The “Walks Through History” program is co-sponsored by the Arkansas Humanities Council, which seeks to promote the understanding, appreciation, and use of the humanities in Arkansas. The humanities include the study of history, literature, ethics, philosophy, language, and the various legal, cultural, religious, and folk traditions – past and present - that define the human condition.

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 Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission and the Historic Arkansas Museum.
