The "Sandwiching In History" program is a series of tours that seeks to familiarize people who live and work in central Arkansas with the historic structures and sites around us. The tours take place on Fridays at noon, last less than an hour, and participants are encouraged to bring their lunches so that they can eat while listening to a brief lecture about the property and its history before proceeding on a short tour. A representative from the property is encouraged to attend also and address the group.

The tours are organized by the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage. All tours are free and open to the public.

Roundtop Filling Station, intersection of Trammel and Roundtop roads, Sherwood. The uniquely shaped Roundtop Filling Station was constructed in 1936 near U.S. Highway 67 by the Justin Matthews Company. The station was initially operated by Pierce Oil. W. D. “Happy” Williford started working at the Roundtop soon after it opened and later purchased the station. In 1981 Williford retired and closed the Roundtop. The property was donated to the City of Sherwood in 2003 and is currently being restored with the help of grants from the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program.
