The Old Mill
The 1939 classic film Gone with the Windcontains this iconic water-powered grist mill in its opening scene. The mill was constructed in 1933 but was made to look like it was from the 1800s. The Old Mill has since been designated a Historical Place and sits in a park full of toadstools, tree stumps, and a tree-branch bridge.

Art & History
Little Rock is full of interesting and important history, so if you’re a fan of museums and landmarks, this is the place for you. Little Rock was the center of desegregation in the 1950s when the Little Rock Nine, a group of nine students, were the first Black students to attend the all-white Little Rock Central High School. The school still stands along with a museum.
Little Rock is also the home of the William J. Clinton Presidential Library, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the Hearne Fine Art Gallery, and a wide range of museum centers for nature, art, culture, and history.
If art and history aren’t your style, Little Rock still has plenty for you. We have relatively warm weather all year, so it’s a great place to come if you like the outdoors. We have all kinds of spots, like the Big Dam Bridge, Pinnacle Mountain State Park, and Riverfront Park, where you can hike, fish, boat, and picnic.
Little Rock is also a great place to just have a good time, whether you’re with a group of friends or you’re on a family trip. From spending an evening at the Mystery Mansion Escape Room to taking your kids to the Altitude Trampoline Park or the Big Rock Fun Park, there’s always something to do in Little Rock.
