The Community Hall of St. Bartholomew’s Catholic Church located in Little Rock is a significant example of an early twentieth-century religious building. The Craftsman-styled building was constructed in the 1920s along with a now-demolished convent. St. Bartholomew’s Church holds great significance to the community for its stable presence over the course of the twentieth century. Upon moving to its current location in 1911, a new church was constructed followed by the convent and community hall structures in 1925 and a school building in 1949. The property is located in the Central High Historic District and is a contributing structure. Currently, the community hall is being used for storage, but plans have been made to demolish the structure. Barring alternative solutions to save the structure, the demolition will likely proceed and result in an immense loss to the architectural and cultural history of the community.

Unfortunately, the building has been demolished since being listed on the Most Endangered Places list.
