Quapaw Quarter among 'Best Old House Neighborhoods'

Little Rock’s Quapaw Quarter, which includes downtown and several adjacent historic neighborhoods, has been named one of the best places to buy an old house by This Old House Magazine.  The magazine states, “Anyone looking for a more laid-back lifestyle that includes more strolling than driving would be wise to check out the Quarter. There are also community gardens, farmer's markets, museums, theaters, and hospitals, all within walking distance. Most restoration work in the National Historic Districts is eligible for state rehabilitation tax credits.”

The article is available online here; the print edition will be released at a later date.

The best way to experience the Quapaw Quarter’s neighborhoods, meet the locals and see inside some of the Quarter’s houses is to attend the Quapaw Quarter Association’s (QQA) Spring Tour of Homes, coming up Mother’s Day weekend, May 12-13.  Several historic houses of all sizes and P. Allen Smith’s garden at 1801 South Gaines Street will be open for public tours.  Tickets prices start at $20 for the Sunday afternoon tour that includes food vendors and street activities.  Saturday evening tours cost $125 and include champagne and an exclusive dinner party in the historic YMCA building at 524 Broadway in downtown Little Rock.  A pre-party will be held at the Villa Marre on April 13, tickets cost $30.  Tickets and sponsorship information are available from the QQA at 501.371.0075 or www.quapaw.com

The Quapaw Quarter Association promotes the preservation of Little Rock’s architectural heritage through advocacy, marketing and education.  Founded in 1968, the Quapaw Quarter Association is a Local Partner of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
