Historic Register Adds Hot Springs Hotel, Mount Nebo Cabin

Oct 14, 2016

A hotel in Hot Springs and a cabin at Mount Nebo State Park are the newest listings on the National Register of Historic Places. 

The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program announced Thursday that the Hill Wheatley Downtowner Motor Inn and Cabin No. 64 at Mount Nebo near Dardanelle are the latest additions to the National Register.  

The Hill Wheatley Downtowner Motor Inn was built in the early 1960s and designed in the mid-century modern style of architecture. The hotel also has a full-service bathhouse that uses thermal water pumped from Hot Springs National Park. 

The Mount Nebo cabin was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps around 1933 as part of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal.
