The College Avenue Historic District in Conway was nominated to be added to the National Register of Historic Places this month.
During a meeting Wednesday, the review board of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program (AHPP) nominated 14 properties in eight counties across the state to be added to the register.
The College Avenue Historic District includes the south side of the 1600-1900 blocks and the north side of the 1800 block of College Avenue.
"The most dominant style characteristic of the houses in the district is Craftsman," the National Register nomination reads in part. "Period Revival style influence is seen in the Spanish Revival character of the houses at 1838 and 1840 College Avenue. English Revival details are seen on the houses at 1814 and 1839 College Avenue. Minimal Traditional style lack of ornamentation and close-rake eaves are expressed in two houses in the district. One Mixed-Masonry style house with stone walls trimmed in brick is located in the College Avenue Historic District."
The other properties nominated Wednesday include the Arkansas Teachers Association Headquarters Building and Professional Service Building at Little Rock in Pulaski County; Greenwood School at Hot Springs in Garland County; R.L. Leach Grocery Store at Dutch Mills in Washington County; Robert Wanslow House, Fitzgerald Historic District and Elmwood Cemetery at Fort Smith in Sebastian County; Green Valley Homestead at Sturkie in Fulton County; Highfill School at Highfill in Benton County; Gentry Grand Army of the Republic Monument at Gentry in Benton County; Johnny Cash Boyhood Home at Dyess in Mississippi County; Blytheville Air Force Base Strategic Arms Command (SAC) Alert and Weapons Storage Areas Historic District at Blytheville in Mississippi County and Sherman Mound in Mississippi County.
