You can find one of the oldest surviving structures of Little Rock and the National Historic Landmark in the historic Arsenal Building. Constructed during 1840 so that the frontier state will be protected from the attack of the Native Americans, this has witnessed fundamental exchanges in between the Confederate and Federal forces during Civil War. Later on, this became General Douglas MacArthur’s birthplace. Through programming and exhibits, this museum makes sure that the “old soldier never die”. In its place, their service and sacrifice were preserved for the coming generations.
