Two of Arkansas's Oldest Structures to be Restored

The Butler Center's Legacies & Lunch program will present Project REACH (Restoring Early Arkansas Culture and History), a project of Black River Technical College on November 4, from noon to 1pm at the Main Library in the Darragh Center (100 S. Rock St.).

Project REACH is working to restore two of Randolph County's historic structures, the 1828 Rice-Upshaw home — believed to be the oldest log structure of its type in Arkansas — and the 1833 Looney Tavern. Both have been nominated to be on the National Register of Historic Places.

Jan Ziegler and Ronnie Walker of Project REACH will discuss their important work in historic preservation.
