Levon Helm's Arkansas Home Added to Historic Register
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s review board voted unanimously Wednesday to add Helm’s boyhood home in Marvell to the register.
Ann Ballard Bryan is an interior design instructor at the University of Central Arkansas. Bryan and her students worked to acquire the historic designation.
Her students took measurements of the home, did research and made architectural drawings and blueprints. Students also organized a fundraiser to help cover restoration costs for the Helm house. Work began in April.
