Harrod Law Office (Farmer’s Bank)

-A A +A
1919. 101 E. Adams St.
  • (Arkansas Historic Preservation Program, A Division of the Department of Arkansas Heritage)

This dressy red brick one-and-a-half-story classical former bank prominently anchors the northwest corner of the public square. With other buildings on the square now “modernized” or altered in some fashion, the bank stands out today as a striking period piece. A tall central arched doorway with a fanlight is flanked by windows crowned with geometrically patterned grilles and separated by brick pilasters. The tall front parapet outlined in limestone rises to a peak and contains the datestone. The flat-roofed front porch with two square columns later replaced a lower metal canopy that extended halfway around the building’s corner to create a more convivial shelter and gathering place than the present arrangement.
