Sandwiching in History to Tour Alternate Location: Second Presbyterian Church

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Wednesday, February 14, 2018

LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit Second Presbyterian Church at 600 Pleasant Valley Drive in Little Rock at noon on Friday, March 2.

The March tour was originally scheduled for the Block Realty-Couch House, but the location had to be changed because of unforeseen circumstances.

Founded in 1882, Second Presbyterian Church is the state’s largest Presbyterian congregation. The current building, the congregation’s third, was built in 1968 and dedicated in 1969 and designed by the noted Little Rock firm of Wittenberg, Delony, and Davidson. The building was erected in West Little Rock because of the westward expansion of the city after World War II, and because the congregation’s members were no longer concentrated near downtown. Neil Hamill Park, the state’s first professionally-trained landscape architect, also completed a landscape plan for the campus, although little of the plan was ultimately carried out.

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.
