Curran Hall - Little Rock Visitor Information Center

By

What:

Curran Hall is one of the few remaining Greek Revival homes in Little Rock. Built in 1942, it has been restored to the time period and features gardens with plants and trees true the era. It currently serves as the Little Rock Visitor Information Center, but the house and gardens are neat on their own if you like historic architecture. It's located in the historic Quapaw Quarters.

Curran Hall was designed by Gideon Shryock in the Greek Revival style. Shryock designed the Kentucky State Capitol and the Old State House.

The Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau says, "The symmetrical, one-story house has a central hall with a large room opening to each side. Walls are three bricks thick. The original narrow front porch has been fully restored. The hip roof, covered with wood shakes, included cypress box gutters. Four square columns supported an entablature with bold dentil trim. Few houses of this era remain with so few interior alterations."
