The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program was created by the Arkansas General Assembly in 1969. The AHPP's mission is to fulfill the objectives of the National Historic Preservation Act through the identification, preservation and protections of the cultural heritage of the State of Arkansas. The AHPP is charged with "conducting relations with representative of the federal government, the respective states, governmental units within Arkansas state agencies, organizations and individuals with regard to matters of historic preservation, including the programs carried out under Public Law 89-655 (16 U.S.C. & 47, et seq).
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act, the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program is offering a free poster of the Greyhound Bus Station in Blytheville.
The poster highlights the Greyhound Bus Station at 109 Fifth Street in Blytheville, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 17, 1987. The ca. 1937 building was constructed around 1937 and is a great example of the Art Moderne style of architecture, as well as being the sole remaining example in the state of the Greyhound Company's signature station design. The Greyhound Bus Station is also a stamping station in the AHPP's National Register Passport program.
The AHPP will offer other posters throughout the year in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.
To get a free poster, write to AHPP Posters, AHPP, 323 Center Street, Suite 1500, Little Rock, AR 72201, call (501) 324-9880, or send an email to email@example.com. Posters are limited to the first 200 people to request them, and please allow four to six weeks for delivery.
