Ain’t so Little, Little Rock!

little-rockThe name is misleading. Little Rock, Arkansas isn’t really small. In fact, this city is the most populated in Arkansas. It is also the state’s capital. This city has drawn so many people including those with big business in their heads as a lot of major companies have their headquarters there. If we mention that the Clintons once lived here and that General Douglas McArthur of World War II fame was born here, we might as well change its name to Big Boulder.


A French explorer and trader, Jean-Baptiste Benard de la Harpe, was responsible for the city’s name. He called it La Petite Roche (little rock in French) when he saw the stone outcropping in the south bank of the Arkansas River which has been a landmark ever since. This was in 1722.

Before European exploration and settlement, much of the Arkansas area was inhabited by Native Americans. The Cherokees were among those who lived in this area. They were said to be religious people who hugely respected their priests. If provoked, they were also not hesitant to engage in war.

There were the Quapaw Indians, who also just happened to live near the rock formation which the city got its name from. Today, they are now headquartered in Oklahoma where they have their own tribal jurisdiction area.

By the early 19th century, William Lewis built a home near the little rock. He was soon followed by Colonel Edmund Hogan who just didn’t build a home but a ferry as well. Settlement by white Americans must have grown rapidly in number because, by 1821, Little Rock became the capital of the Arkansas territory and the seat of Pulaski County. By 1831, it became a city.

During the Civil War, the city joined the Confederates who were opposed to the abolition of slavery. The reason for this was plantation owners needed the slaves for labor.

Years before the 19th century ended, Little Rock already had telephone operations, waterworks system, a newspaper circulation, electrical street lighting, electric streetcars, and a fire department.

In 1850, the population was 2,167. By 1900, it mushroomed to 38,307 individuals.

The house of the state government, the State Capitol building, was completed in 1911. Five years after, Pulaski Heights, which is a suburban area, was added to the city.

Other memorable establishments that were built prior to World War II were Little Rock Zoo (1921), Little Rock Junior College and Little Rock Senior High School (1927), Travelers Field (1932), and Museum of Fine Arts (1937).

By 1950, the population was more than 100,000 people.

The popular food, cheese dog, was developed in 1956 by Finkbeiner Meat Packing Co. It is a company located in Little Rock.

In 1957, a controversial and historic moment happened. Nine African-American students enrolled in Little Rock Central High School. This event brought a lot of ruckuses because, at this period in American history, segregation was still very prevalent.

Dillard’s, a prominent chain of department stores, relocated its headquarters in Little Rock in 1964.

There was a construction boom in 1968. Among the towering buildings built were the Worthen Bank Building and the Union National Bank. It was in 1974 that the tallest building in the city, the First National Bank, was constructed.

In 1992, Bill Clinton was elected president of the country, the first one that came from the State of Arkansas.

Arkansas Museum of Discovery was built to answer a pundit who accused the people of Arkansas of being culturally ignorant. This museum focuses on science, technology, engineering, and math. The interactive exhibits should be a cure for ignorance.
