The Argenta Historic District in downtown North Little Rock, Arkansas, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. It is a commercial and residential area that represents the history of the growth of North Little Rock, known at one point as Argenta after local silver deposits, during the early 20th century. After a period of decline in the 1960s and 1970s, a push for historic preservation and economic development in the 1990s helped to revitalize this historic neighborhood. Join us as we explore the historic commercial core of downtown North Little Rock in cooperation with Argenta Downtown Council.
