The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s monthly Sandwiching in History tour series will feature three houses in the Argenta Historic District at noon on Friday, November 4, 2011. Please encourage neighborhood residents and friends to attend! The event is free and open to the public. No registration required. All ages welcome.

The Sandwiching in History Tour of the Edgar B. Moseley House at 415 Willow St. in North Little Rock will be at noon on Friday, November 4, 2011. The Moseley House at 415 Willow St. is one of the most outstanding examples of the Craftsman style in the Argenta Historic District. In addition to the home’s exterior detailing, its original Craftsman-style interior remains intact with columns, built-in shelving, and a coffered ceiling. Moseley was a pharmacist at Hall Drug Store, which occupied the building at 324 Main St. in North Little Rock from 1903 to 1916, when Argenta Drug Store moved into the building. In 1917 Moseley constructed three similar Craftsman-style houses at the southwest corner of Fifth and Willow streets—415 Willow, 400 W. 5th, and 404 W. 5th. Moseley initially lived in the two-story house at 400 W. 5th Street. His daughter, Vivian, and her husband, Dr. B. L. Church, lived in the house at 415 Willow. For more information, call Rachel Silva at (501) 324-9788.

The tour will begin at noon in front of 415 Willow. Tour participants are in for a special treat because they will also be allowed to tour the house at 404 W. 5th and peek inside the larger Craftsman house at 400 W. 5th as well.
