The Villa Marre house (pictured right), which was saved and restored by the Quapaw Quarter Association, was used in the TV show "Designing Women," and has become a nationally recognized symbol for the quality of Little Rock's historic resources.
This year’s tour will also include the Foster-Robinson House (pictured below) at 2122 S. Broadway; the Senhausen House at 2319 S. Gaines; Rosehaven Cottages Bed & Breakfast at 1410-1412 S. Arch St.; the Nelson Auto Garage (Warehouse Lofts, ca. 1914) at 1509 S. Louisiana; the Annie Ward Cottage at 1508 S. Louisiana, as well as a newly constructed condominium in the River Market District.
This tour will also feature Little Rock's oldest church building, the Cathedral of St. Andrew at 617 S. Louisiana. In recent years, the church has undergone extensive restoration, bringing its original beauty and craftsmanship back to life.
During the afternoon of the tour, the Charlotte John Company will host several open houses in the area. We are excited to participate in such a fantastic event, and look forward to seeing you there!
