Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Thursday, September 14, 2017

LITTLE ROCK—The Darragh Building at Little Rock in Pulaski County has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the country’s official list of historically significant properties.

The Darragh Building at 1403 East 6th Street was designed by Noland Blass, Jr., of the Erhart, Eichenbaum, Rauch, & Blass firm in 1958.

“The Darragh family and Noland Blass, Jr. were a part of the civic community of Little Rock through the decades of the mid-20th century,” according to the National Register nomination. “This is one possible explanation for why Noland Blass, Jr. was selected by the Darragh Company to design a new corporate office headquarters for the prosperous company. This office, which still exists and is now called the Darragh Building, is a prime example of the Modernistic Style of architecture, popular during a period that began in the 1930s and lasted through the 1960s.”

The AHPP is the Department of Arkansas Heritage agency responsible for identifying, evaluating, registering and preserving the state’s cultural resources. Other agencies are the Arkansas Arts Council, the Delta Cultural Center in Helena, the Old State House Museum, the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the Historic Arkansas Museum and the Arkansas State Archives.
