Biographical/Historical Note

At the request of the Quapaw Quarter Committee, the Little Rock Historic District Commission was created in 1963, in an effort to support preservation of historic homes in the Quapaw Quarter. In order to reach this goal, the commission compiled a list of potential homes that needed to be saved and preserved. They faced opposition from the beginning, with very little public support from the homeowners, many of whom wished to rezone their properties from residential to commercial use. In 1966, the commission temporarily gave up the push to get an historic district created.
