Sandwiching in History to Tour Kleinschmidt House

Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Friday, September 22, 2017

LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s next “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit the Gustave Kleinschmidt House at 621 East 16th Street at Little Rock beginning at noon on Friday, October 6.

Built about 1907, it is an excellent local example of Colonial Revival architecture. Gustave Kleinschmidt, for whom it was built, was a German immigrant and a prominent local real estate agent. Kleinschmidt was the catalyst for the development of his working class neighborhood and made a significant impact on the economy and society of Little Rock in the early 20th Century. It was added to the National Register on June 7, 2016.

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. The American Institute of Architects offers one HSW continuing education learning unit credit for members who attend a “Sandwiching in History” tour.

Other 2017 “Sandwiching in History” tours will be held November 3, Pulaski County Courthouse, 401 West Markham Street, Little Rock, and December 1, Little Rock City Hall, 500 West Markham Street, Little Rock.

All tours are free and open to the public. For information, call the AHPP at (501) 324-9880, write the agency at 1100 North Street, Little Rock, AR 72201, send an e-mail message to [email protected], or visit
