Kays House nominated to National Register of Historic Places

LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - A historic building on the Arkansas State University campus could soon join the National Register of Historic Places.

The Victor Cicero Kays, along with six other properties in the state, were nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. The house located on Aggie Rd. is the 1936 Tudor Revival-style home of the founding president, Victor Kays.

The Kays House was slated to be torn down in 2012 to build sorority houses, but an effort made to keep the house standing succeeded.

The organization will meet and make a decision on Apr. 2 in Little Rock.

Other properties for consideration are:

  • Dr. T.E. Buffington House, Benton
  • Morrilton Colored School, Morrilton
  • Northern Ohio School, Parkin
  • Hankins Store, Oil Trough
  • Mary H. Matthew Lustron House, Little Rock
  • Lion Oil Company Duck Hunting Lodge, Casscoe
