Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Thursday, February 23, 2017

LITTLE ROCK—The Federal Building – U.S. Post Office and Courthouse at Pine Bluff in Jefferson County has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the country’s official list of historically significant properties.

The Federal Building – U.S. Post Office and Courthouse at 100 East 8th Street is a three-story International-style building built in 1965-1967 and designed by Erhart, Eichenbaum, Rauch & Blass and Brueggeman and Landauer & Associates.

“The Pine Bluff U.S. Post Office and Courthouse is significant for its associations with the role of urban renewal in Pine Bluff,” according to the National Register nomination. “By the mid-twentieth century, the area where the federal building was built had deteriorated and decayed into a swampy area that was occupied by substandard housing and struggling businesses. However, the construction of the Pine Bluff U.S. Post Office and Courthouse (along with the entire Civic Center complex) represented the pivotal role of urban renewal in modernizing and revitalizing Pine Bluff’s downtown in the 1960s.”
