What We Do

Events

The QQA hosts a variety of events throughout the year. In addition to our free Preservation Conversations educational events, we also host the Summer Suppers series (dinner at historic properties), the Spring Tour (Mother’s day weekend), and a Mid-Century Modern Tour (on a biennial basis).

The QQA hosts Preservation Conversations on the second Thursday of every month. All lectures are free and open to the public.  Please RSVP using the links below.  

The QQA Board and the Spring Tour committee have decided to cancel this year’s Tour of Homes out of an abundance of caution surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. The Tour, which was launched in 1963, is traditionally held Mother’s Day weekend and highlights historic neighborhoods throughout greater Little Rock. “Originally, we planned to hold the tour later in the summer, but we have reevaluated that plan,” noted QQA’s Executive Director, Patricia Blick.

“The tour is our largest educational and outreach undertaking each year, along with our largest fundraiser, so we did not arrive at this decision without great consideration,” stated Blick. Please go to Quapaw.com for more information if you have already purchased tickets, or call Shelle Stormoe at 501-371-0075 ext. 3.
The tour, planned for the historic Pettaway Neighborhood will take place Mother’s Day weekend, May 8 & 9, 2021. As currently planned, the tour of the historic Pettaway neighborhood will feature historic and infill housing.Tour Co-Chairs, Jill and Adam Fogleman are committed to continuing in their role next year.
