FAQ: What is the history of the Arkansas House Chamber?

Categories Historical Records

When legislators began meeting in the current House chamber in 1911, electric lighting was still a new concept. There was no audio system to help members hear testimony from the floor. The furniture made its way from the Old State House in a wagon less than 24 hours before session began.

Most recently the chamber underwent a restoration project in 2018.
