Long Description:
Marker Text -


In 1932, the Arkansas Council of Home

Demonstration Clubs established the

first Women's 4H House in America at the

University of Arkansas. Nine students lived in

the house during its first year, but it proved

so popular that the Council began raising

money for a larger more permanent building.

A stone house was built on this corner

in 1951 and was home each year to 40

women who paid $35 per month in cash

or commodities. In 1977, it was sold to a

fraternity and later used as a residence by

other groups before being torn down in

2003 to make way for the Garland Center.

1951 - 2003

Architect E. Chester Nelson designed the building which included living

space, a game room, 20 bedrooms, a glassed in porch and a music room.
