The Arkansas Governor’s Mansion and Its Place in
John P. Gill
A guided tour through six decades
of Arkansas history
In its six decades of existence, the Arkansas Governor’s
Mansion, which sits in the middle of Center Street near downtown
Little Rock, has played a prominent role in Arkansas history
and has had its share of national attention. Now, much of
that history is available in a new book from John Gill, who
opens the doors of the mansion to reveal how the building
and its occupants have changed through the years. It also
provides a unique glimpse into the everyday lives of the governors
and their families.
P. Gill is an attorney and historian who lives
in Little Rock, Arkansas. He also is the author of The
Crossroads of Arkansas (Butler Center Books) and
Post Masters: Arkansas Post Office Art in the New Deal.
