Hundreds of historic blueprints now available online

The UALR Center for Arkansas History and Culture has digitized over 600 blueprint sheets of buildings in Little Rock. Many are buildings that have been nominated to the National Register of Historic Places, including the Women’s City Club building and Hotel Freiderica; as well as buildings under current renovation downtown, including the Sterling Building and the Boyle Building.

The public will be able to access these digitized blueprints through the Center’s electronic catalog.

The architectural drawing collection, includes churches, schools, businesses, and residences, dating from the early 1900s to the 1940s. This project focused on digitizing the most fragile drawings from the collection, specifically non-residential buildings, pre-1929, and was supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the Department of Arkansas Heritage.
