Downtown Little Rock is filled with history at every street corner.
Learn some of that history at the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program's monthly "Sandwiching in History" event tomorrow (Jan. 4) as a guided tour will be taken through the historic B.P.O.E. Elks Club, 401 S. Scott.
From noon to 1 p.m., patrons can eat their sack lunch while listening to a brief lecture about the property before heading on a fascinating tour of the historic building in downtown Little Rock.
The subject of the tour-- the B.P.O.E. Elks Club building-- has a long history in Little Rock. Designed in 1908, the building is a great example of classic Renaissance Revival style. It served as a clubhouse to the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge No. 29, later as the home of the Women's City Club and now as the headquarters of the Junior League of Little Rock.
The "Sandwiching in History" program is a series of tours the first Friday of every month that familiarizes people who live and work in central Arkansas with the historic buildings and sites in the area. The tours are organized by the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage.
The tour is free and open to the public. Click here for more information or call Rachel Silva at 501-324-9788.
