About Downtown Little Rock

The capital and largest city in Arkansas is Little Rock. The population of Little Rock, which also serves as the county seat of Pulaski County, was just under 194,000 according to the 2010 census. Little Rock is the home of several national corporations, as well as several major banks. Little Rock ranked #22 as the best metropolitan area to do business in one 2005 study. The study ranked 361 cities for their business atmosphere.

The city provides numerous opportunities for higher education, and several hospitals are based in Little Rock. Numerous major highways provide avenues for various products to travel into and out of town. Interstate 40, a major east-west highway that runs the length of the United States runs through town along with a great deal of freight. The city is also home of the William J. Clinton Presidential Center, which honors the 42nd President of the United States and the Arkansas legislature meets in the city.

A French explorer gave Little Rock its name, calling it La Petite Roche in reference to a rock formation on the bank of the Arkansas River. Many Native American tribes inhabited the region, and it was a part of the greater Mississippian culture. Fur trapper William Lewis was the first documented American to build a home in the area in 1812. During the Civil War, Arkansas joined the Confederacy, and Union forces occupied the city in 1863.

Little Rock is perhaps best known for the Little Rock Nine. In 1957, after the Brown vs. Board of Education decision by the Supreme Court, Governor Orval Faubus attempted to bar the admission of nine African American students at Little Rock Central High School. Faubus had to relent when President Eisenhower sent federal troops to ensure the entry of the students. Famous people with ties to the city include Generals Douglas MacArthur and Wesley Clark and former President Bill Clinton.
