Additional Event Details


 

St. Bartholomew Catholic Church, 1622 Marshall St., Little Rock (December 4)

The predominantly black parish of St. Bartholomew was founded in a converted store on 8th Street in 1909. By 1911, a new two-story brick school and church was built near the current church. In 1931, the current church and rectory were built at the corner of 17th and Marshall Streets. The Catholic high school and elementary across the street finally closed in 1974, after providing educations to many black students. The church and school were and continue to be an important part of the history of Little Rock.
