Calling on history

comment

There's history haunting Boyle Park, Little Rock City Hall, Ditch Bayou Battlefield in Chicot County and other locales, so who you gonna call? Try 501-203-3015, the state Historic Preservation Program's number for cell-phone tours of historic sites. (You can also go to www.arkansaspreservation.com/tours-events-workshops/audio-tours, but that seems a little more time-consuming.)

Tour site numbers are posted at the sites and on the web; you'll need them to access the information by phone. Boyle Park is 21, City Hall is 61 and Ditch Bayou is 17. Besides the above sites, you can hear recordings on the history of First Lutheran Church (41), Robert E. Lee School (51), Fourche Bayou Battlefield (11) in Little Rock; Crestview Park (31) and the Park Hill Fire Station and Water Company (71) in North Little Rock; Cane Hill Battlefield (10) in Washington County; Elkins' Ferry (12) and Prairie D'Ane Battlefields (13) in Nevada County; Poison Spring Battlefield (14) in Ouachita County; Fort Southerland (18) in Camden, Marks' Mills Battlefield (15) in Cleveland County and Jenkins' Ferry Battlefield (16) in Grant County.

More tours will be added in upcoming months.
