Efforts In Progress To Establish NWA’s First Black Historic District

Local nonprofit NWA Black Heritage is leading efforts to commemorate the Spout Spring Historic District in Fayetteville, establishing it as the first Black historic district in Northwest Arkansas.

  • Preserving History: A focal point of Black heritage and history in the region, Spout Spring was settled by formerly enslaved people and their descendants sometime after the Civil War. It later became one of the few areas African Americans could reside during the 1960s due to sundown laws.

  • City Involvement: The district’s proposed boundaries include the city-owned Fayetteville Senior Activity & Wellness Center and the Yvonne Richardson Community Center, which is set to receive a $1m expansion. Fayetteville City Council voted unanimously last week to authorize Mayor Lioneld Jordan to sign the petition for the proposed preservation area.
