‘SANDWICHING IN HISTORY’ TOUR TO VISIT CLIFTON HOUSE

LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit the Thomas M. Clifton House at 1423 South Summit Street in Little Rock on November 6, AHPP Director Frances McSwain announced today.

Located in the Central High School Neighborhood Historic District, this house was built about 1900 and features elements of the Craftsman and Colonial Revival styles. The first long-term occupant was Thomas M. Clifton, who worked in the Choctaw, Oklahoma & Gulf Railroad shops. The house was recently rehabilitated with the help of the state historic rehabilitation tax credit.

The “Sandwiching in History” tour series targets Pulaski County structures and sites. The noontime series includes a brief lecture and tour of the subject property. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunches with them. The American Institute of Architects offers one HSW continuing education learning unit credit for members who attend a “Sandwiching in History” tour.

The final 2015 “Sandwiching in History” tour will be held December 4 at the Albert Pike Memorial Temple at 712 Scott Street in Little Rock.
