Downtown WR considered
for the National Register

Downtown Walnut Ridge was recently nominated to the National Register of Historic Places and will be considered by the State Review Board of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program on April 7.

According to AHPP Director Frances McSwain, the Walnut Ridge commercial historic district features buildings that date back to 1875.

The AHPP is the Department of Arkansas Heritage agency that identifies, evaluates, registers and preserves the state's cultural resources.

"Most of the buildings of the district exemplify the one or two-part commercial block form of the late 19th and early 20th centuries commonly found in small towns of the period," stated the National Register nomination.

"Styles represented within the district include Italianate, Colonial Revival and Craftsman. The district's buildings and landscape are reflective of Walnut Ridge's status as a commercial and governmental center of Lawrence County during the late 19th and 20th centuries."

The State Review Board will consider Downtown Walnut Ridge and 11 other properties during the meeting, which will be held at 10 a.m. in room 170 of the Tower Building in Little Rock. For more information visit the AHPP's website at
