Biographical/Historical Note

The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program was created by the Arkansas General Assembly in 1969. The AHPP’s mission is to fulfill the objectives of the National Historic Preservation Act through the identification, preservation, and protection of the cultural heritage of the State of Arkansas. The AHPP is charged with “conducting relations with representative of the federal government, the respective states, governmental units within Arkansas state agencies, organizations, and individuals with regard to matters of historic preservation.” The Pleasant Valley subdivision is a residential housing development located in west Little Rock between Rodney Parham Road and Cantrell Road. Little Rock annexed Pleasant Valley Subdivision as part of a 2,347-acre section in 1964. Construction of the subdivision primarily took place during the 1960s and 1970s. The preliminary plat of Pleasant Valley Subdivision consisted of 1,059 lots and a 27-hole golf course. Pleasant Valley, along with neighboring subdivisions such as Colony West, Breckenridge, Walnut Valley, Treasure Hill, and Sturbridge, were designed to accommodate the Interstate 430 interchange and future commercial development as part of the westward expansion of Little Rock, Arkansas.
