QQA Cheryl Griffith Nichols Historic Building Marker Program

The Quapaw Quarter Association announced the Cheryl Griffith Nichols Historic Building Marker Program in 2015. Since then, QQA has presented over 50 markers. They display the building name and date of construction. They may be pole-mounted, or attached directly to a building.   

The program’s goals are to recognize historically and architecturally significant buildings located anywhere in the city of Little Rock that have been well-maintained or have undergone exemplary rehabilitation; to bring to the attention of the general public buildings that are unique assets to the Little Rock; and to promote the QQA as Little Rock's leading historic preservation organization.  

In 2018, the QQA Board has set aside funds to make the program more affordable for property owners. The 2018 application period is over, but you may contact us for more information on future application periods for historic building markers. E-mail qqa@quapaw.com or call 501-371-0075 ext. 4.
