A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Arkansas s Old State House, arguably the most famous building in the state, was conceived during the territorial period and has served through statehood. A History of Arkansas s Old State House traces the history of the architecture and purposes of the remarkable building. The history begins with Gov. John Pope s ideas for a symbolic state house for Arkansas and continues through the construction years and an expansion in 1885. After years of deterioration, the building was abandoned by the state government, and the Old State House then became a medical school and office building. Kwas traces the subsequent fight for the building s preservation on to its use today as a popular museum of Arkansas history and culture. Brief biographies of secretaries of state, preservationists, caretakers, and others are included, and the book is generously illustrated with early and seldom-seen photographs, drawings, and memorabilia.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Arkansas's Old State House, arguably the most famous building in the state, was conceived during the territorial period and has served through statehood. A History of Arkansas's Old State House traces the history of the architecture and purposes of the remarkable building. The history begins with Gov. John Pope's ideas for a symbolic state house for Arkansas and continues through the construction years and an expansion in 1885. After years of deterioration, the building was abandoned by the state government, and the Old State House then became a medical school and office building. Kwas traces the subsequent fight for the building's preservation on to its use today as a popular museum of Arkansas history and culture. Brief biographies of secretaries of state, preservationists, caretakers, and others are included, and the book is generously illustrated with early and seldom-seen photographs, drawings, and memorabilia.

Critique:

"This book rises far beyond a mere souvenir item into a detailed account of how the building has stood at the very center of the state's political life... surely it must rank as one of the most beautiful and essential books in the canon of Arkansas history." --Michael B. Dougan, "Arkansas Historical Quarterly"
