LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program has hired Marlon Mowdy to develop the Jacob Wolf House Historic Site in Norfork, AHPP Interim Director Marian Boyd announced today.

Mowdy will be responsible for planning and developing management and interpretation at the Jacob Wolfe House, a ca.1825 building that served as the original Izard County Courthouse.

“I’m very excited that Marlon Mowdy is joining the AHPP and helping to develop the Wolf House as a heritage tourism destination,” Department of Arkansas Heritage Director Stacy Hurst said. “We look forward to welcoming visitors to Arkansas’s oldest courthouse later this year.”

Mowdy, who holds a master’s degree in heritage studies and public history from Arkansas State University, is a nineteen-year resource management veteran of Arkansas State Parks, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, having served as superintendent and ranger at museums, parks and wildlife refuges.

The AHPP is the Department of Arkansas Heritage agency responsible for identifying, evaluating, registering and preserving the state’s cultural resources.
