Magnolia Properties Get Historic Designations

Jun 14, 2013

Two structures in Magnolia have been added to the National Register of Historic Places.

The Banner-News reports that the president's house at Southern Arkansas University and the Rushton Clinic in Magnolia were named to the list after consideration earlier this year by the state review board of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program.

The president's house built for the SAU president on campus is a mid-century modern design by Little Rock's Wittenberg, Delony and Davidson architectural firm. It was built from 1957-1959 and now serves as the university's welcome center and home of the Southern Arkansas University Foundation.

The Rushton Clinic was built in 1938 in the art modern style that is considered unusual in small Arkansas towns during that time.
