Web Extra: Tour of New Republican Party Headquarters

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The chairman of the Republican Party of Arkansas took Capitol View host Jessi Turnure on a tour of the party's new headquarters, which is currently under renovation.

The party moved into its homestead on 6th Street right down the road from the state capitol in 1996, when Gov. Asa Hutchinson served as chairman.

The renovated complex, the Rockefeller Republican Center, will include a brand new building in his honor, the Gov. Asa Hutchinson Historium. The facility merges two buildings built in the late 40s that currently serve has the RPA headquarters. 

Chairman Doyle Webb said the historium will include busts of state elected officials, multimedia galleries and a custom-made light fixture symbolic of Arkansas history, including 75 stars for its 75 counties and a diamond for the state flag. 

The current administrative office building, soon to be the Gov. Mike Huckabee Executive Wing, sits on the left of the historium with the reception hall, John Paul Hammerschmidt Hall, on the right. 

A new outdoor patio and kitchen, Diversity Plaza, is located behind the complex.  

Webb said the RPA will move into its new headquarters in late summer and dedicate the facility Sept. 17, which is the 230th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. 

You can see the full tour in the embedded video above.

Capitol View airs Sunday mornings at 8:30 on KARK.
