25 Best Arkansas Wedding Venues



Attraction Spotlight: Old State House Museum

The Old State House Museum in Little Rock has a history dating back to 1833 when the construction of the state capitol was started. Old State House Museum grounds have hosted an array of dramatic and historically significant moments in Arkansas history from the admission of Arkansas to the Union, a fatal knife fight between two prominent legislators, the vote to officially join the confederacy and secede from The United States, and the research center for malaria and hookworm. There were even two presidential acceptance speeches held at the former Arkansas State Capitol.

The capitol building first began construction in 1933 when the territory of Arkansas had a large enough population to apply to become a state. Architect Gideon Shryock designed the building to be a Greek revival style to create a connection between the ideals of the original Greek democracy and the new American democracy. The capitol soon became the Confederate State Capitol of Arkansas in 1861, but was used as the Union Military post in Arkansas after the Union troops captured Little Rock in 1863.

In 1874 the grounds and building were actually the forefront of a military battle for governorship of Arkansas between Brooks and Baxter. Known as the Brooks-Baxter war, President Ulysses S. Grant had to threaten national military intervention to end the fighting between the two republican factions if they did not end it peacefully on their own. Luckily, this was the last dramatic and violent occurrence on the property.

In 1880, the capitol building was renovated to include all three branches of government until the new capitol building was finished in 1911. After the government center moved, the building was used as Arkansas School of Medical Sciences. This school achieved great medical advancement in the treatment of hookworm and malaria through the Crosset Experiment. The school became renowned worldwide for this research.

The greater part of the twentieth century the building was used for numerous ventures including a war memorial, police headquarters, and offices for political statewide organizations. It was not until 1947 that the state capitol building became a museum through legislature and became of Old State House Museum. The museum was added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1969 and designated a national landmark in 1997. The current mission of the Old State House Museum is to preserve, share and celebrate the history of Arkansas and its people. The museum is the oldest intact state capitol building west of the Mississippi River and has also been the site for President Bill Clinton's election night celebrations in 1992 and 1996.

The Old State House Museum began collecting and researching items relevant to the history of Arkansas in 1950. The online collection of artifacts represents only a fraction of the entire collection that will hopefully be added online in the near future. The collections of artifacts that are presented online are not part of any particular exhibit and is constantly being added to as new items are discovered, researched and verified.

Some of the artifacts are from earlier World's Fairs as well and many are leant to other museums for their own exhibitions on the World's Fair.

Attraction Spotlight: Clinton Presidential Library and Museum

Located among 29 acres of beautiful grounds on the banks of the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock, the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum and the Clinton School of Public Service comprise a facility that warrants more than a fleeting visit. It has a long list of attracting draws and can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of their political leanings.

Inside the library you can find a replica of the Oval Office as it was during Clinton’s time in office as well as his presidential limousine, a theater, and the Cabinet Room. There is an ever-changing array of exhibits, not to mention the Forty Two restaurant, which boasts stunning views of the Arkansas River. There is also a gift shop located nearby and trails through the breathtaking grounds that surround the library.

The onsite restaurant serves up stunning views and delicious plates, and they pride themselves on a locally sourced and farm-fresh menu that caters to all tastes. The team also offers delivery providing lunch catering to local businesses and office parties.

The actual library doesn’t shy away from the less flattering side of the Clinton administration either; it contains his day-to-day schedule, information, and an insightful look into the life of a president. It contains his greatest achievements and his biggest failures. It’s quite humanizing and definitely an interesting read. The permanent exhibits feature the timeline from his inauguration and contain every major story and accomplishment during the Clinton administration. It looks into the work before and after the time in the White House and examines the intricacies of what life was like in the there at that time. A particular exhibit of note is that of the Little Rock Nine, which features the history and story behind this momentous change in the country and even exhibits one of the medals awarded by President Clinton to the Little Rock Nine.

The center is also home to traveling exhibits both educational and entertaining on topics stretching from bugs to The Beatles (the band, not more bugs); it’s always a good idea to check the website and see if anything of interest is scheduled. Education was always a priority of the Clinton administration and the facility still provides support and services to educators across the country.
