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). Because the Covid-19 pandemic has curtailed many in-person events, we are currently not planning to host the Tour of Homes until late 2021. If you have questions about any of our events, please email qqa@quapaw.com or call 501-371-0075 ext. 3.   

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.

July 8: Preservation Conversation: The Heart of the Home by Danielle Butler

Join the QQA for a chat with Public Historic Danielle Butler. As an expansion of her 2016 home tour at the Boyle House in the Governor’s Mansion Historic District, Danielle Butler will discuss the lives and work of the domestic workers who were employed in the Boyle House from the home’s 1922 construction to the present. Butler will discuss the lives of these often invisible women of history, how the kitchen layout and technology affected their work, and how domestic work has changed over the last 100 years in Arkansas.

Time: 6:00 pm, via Zoom and YouTube Live.
