What We Do


The QQA hosts a variety of events throughout the year. In addition to our free Preservation Conversations educational events, we also host the Summer Suppers series (dinner at historic properties), the Spring Tour (Mother’s day weekend), and a Mid-Century Modern Tour (on a biennial basis).  If you have questions about any of our events, please email qqa@quapaw.com or call 501-371-0075 ext. 3.   

The Great Unveiling: Hands-on Workshop at the Ernest Green House

We have finalized plans for their second hands-on restoration workshop to be held in Little Rock, June 12-16, 2023. This “Great Unveiling” workshop will take place at the Ernest Green House and the participants will remove non-original siding, make wood repairs and paint the exterior siding and trim. Nationally recognized instructor, Bob Yapp, will provide hands on instruction to a group of up to 18 craftspeople. The workshop will take place at the National Register listed Ernest Green House in the historic Dunbar neighborhood. We will work each day from 8 am to 5 pm. By the end of the weeklong workshop the participants will have removed all of the artificial aluminum siding and restored as much of the original wood siding as possible.
The project is supported by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Preserve Arkansas, and the QQA. The cost to participate is $500, however, we have scholarships available. Email executive director, Patricia Blick, if you are interested in joining the workshop.

Date: June 12-16

Time: 8am-5pm each day

Place: 1224 W 21st St, Little Rock, AR 72206
