Preserve Arkansas will feature four El Dorado homes in our next virtual Mid Mod Arkansas tour. This tour seeks to increase appreciation for Arkansas’s unique Mid-Century Modern architecture. Tour videos will premiere on Preserve Arkansas’s Facebook page and YouTube channel on September 21 and 23 at 6:00 p.m. The first video, appearing on September 21, will include the Henley and Riley houses designed in 1960 by celebrated Arkansas architect E. Fay Jones, who spent most of his childhood living in El Dorado. The second video, appearing on September 23, will highlight the Gilliam-Wilson and Clark houses, designed in 1957 and 1960, respectively, by Charles Ripley. Ripley was a contemporary of Fay Jones, graduating in 1951 from the University of Arkansas’s new architecture program. Join us to learn about the architecture of these homes as well as the people who designed and lived in them. Thanks to our generous sponsors, these virtual tours are free.
