Twelve Region 8 Counties Targeted for AHPP Survey

October 17, 2003 - Posted at 10:55 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program plans to document historic properties reflecting the evolution and activities of the cotton and rice farming industries in the Arkansas Delta beginning this winter, AHPP Director Ken Grunewald announced today.

   "Cotton and rice farming are two of the most historically important industries associated with the Arkansas Delta and we want to have a record of the buildings and sites that tell the story of those industries," Grunewald said.  "With the permission of the owners, we will nominate eligible structures to the National Register of Historic Places, the country's official list of historically significant properties."

Among the types of properties the agency will seek to document are barns, sheds, silos, mills, dryers, elevators, gins, warehouses, crop duster hangars and landing strips, plantation stores and offices and tenant houses that were constructed at least 50 years ago.

Twelve Region 8 counties will be included in the survey, including Clay, Craighead, Crittenden, Cross, Greene, Jackson, Lawrence, Mississippi, Poinsett, St. Francis, White and Woodruff.

Anyone with information on a historic structure associated with the cotton and rice industries is encouraged to contact the AHPP at 1500 Tower Building, 323 Center Street, Little Rock, AR 72201, or via phone at 501-324-9880.  Messages may also be e-mailed to info@arkansaspreservation.org.
