The Quapaw Quarter is the oldest and most historic business and residential neighborhood in Little Rock. The name honors the Quapaw Indians who once lived in the area.
As many as 15 separate National Historic Register Districts make up the Quapaw Quarter, including more than 200 homes and buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.
The neighborhood features many stately, artfully restored homes of varying sizes from the Antebellum and Victorian eras, the earliest dating to the 1840s. Other styles, including Craftsman, American Foursquare and Colonial Revival, can be found.
Many significant Arkansas landmarks are located in the Quapaw Quarter, including the Governor’s Mansion, the Arkansas Arts Center, the University of Arkansas Law School, Mount Holly Cemetery and MacArthur Park.
Quapaw Quarter homes can be surprisingly affordable, ranging in price from $80,000 to $600,000.
