Biographical/Historical Note

The Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) was founded in 1844 in London, England, by George Williams and eleven of his friends. The YMCA in the United States was formed in 1851 in Boston. By the 1860s, the YMCA was providing affordable housing to young men who were new to the area and in need of assistance. Throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the YMCA's mission evolved to provide low-cost board, religious education, athletic training, and other educational programs for men and boys. The YMCA in Little Rock was organized around 1885.
