Arkansas Historic Preservation Program - Tuesday, January 10, 2017

LITTLE ROCK–The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program “Sandwiching in History” tour of Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church at 4823 Woodlawn Drive in Little Rock has been rescheduled for noon on Friday, January 20, AHPP Director Frances McSwain announced today.

Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church’s cornerstone was laid on July 21, 1912, “in presence of several hundred people of the suburb,” now known as the Hillcrest Historic District. Since then, the church has grown steadily to a membership of more than 4,000 members. The campus has expanded and been renovated with the addition of the Norma Story Children’s Building and the Dr. James B. Argue Christian Life Center. In 1998, the sanctuary underwent an extensive renovation that included the installation of a 74-rank organ with 4,190 pipes; 20 cast-bronze bells with strikers were added to the original four peal bells. The Nixon Disciple Center, parking deck and Columbarium were added in 2005.

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.
