Only in AR: Curran Hall

Inside a little old home on the east end of Capitol Avenue is a place that opens up, on the inside, the world that is Little Rock and the state of Arkansas.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The history and livelihood of the state can be seen in places all over central Arkansas. And there's one place that can give you a look or send you on your way to most of them.

Inside a little old home on the east end of Capitol Avenue is a place that opens up, on the inside, the world that is Little Rock and the state of Arkansas.

"We are the first Arkansans people meet a lot of the time," said Rhea Roberts.

Roberts, executive director of the Quapaw Quarter Association, helps manage the building called Curran Hall, which holds the official Little Rock Visitor's Information Center.

She says many folks who even call this area home didn't know this treasure of a place was hidden here.

"We're pretty proud of it," Roberts said. "It's pretty unique in the state."

Built in 1842, it's one of only a few brick Antebellum houses remaining, and surely one of few you can just show up and take a walk through.

During open hours, you can stop by, tour the garden out back, read up on a bit of Little Rock history and take in the inner workings of a home 30 years short of being two centuries old.

"You can just see how tall the ceilings are and how different the rooms are configured," Roberts said.

And while you're here, of course, start your way to all the other places that are only in Arkansas.

"We can direct you anywhere you need to go," Roberts said.
