Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Friday, January 23, 2015

LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s nex “Sandwiching in History” tour will visit the Matthews-Clauson-McCullough House at 10226 Miller Road in Sherwood on February 6, AHPP Director Frances McSwain announced today.

This large, Craftsman-style home was built about 1928 by the Justin Matthews Company in the Pope Place Addition of Sylvan Hills. It features a stone portico, banks of casement windows, and false half-timbering in the gable ends. The house was used as rental property until 1944, when it was purchased by Donald and Evelyn Clauson. The Clauson family sold it in 1950 to Murray and Martha McCullough.

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.
