Law Firm Pulls Wraps Off Newly-Renovated Historic Downtown Jonesboro Building

MARCH 18, 2005 - Posted at 7:35 a.m. CST

JONESBORO, AR - The Stricker Law Firm of Jonesboro formally unveiled its newly-renovated and refurbished historic building in downtown Jonesboro this afternoon with an open house of the facility 249 South Main Street.

The 114-year-old building was constructed at the corner of Main and Huntington in 1990, as the Craighead County Bank.  The building eventually became Mercantile Bank, until that company re-located in a new building in 1968.  The facility at Main & Huntington was then occupied by the Crowley's Ridge Development Council until 2004, when it was purchased by the Stricker Law Firm.

Through the collaboration of architects, interior design specialists and historians, the building has now been restored to its original appearance, and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The public will be allowed to view the building's interior today with an open house event that will continue until 9 p.m.
