North Little Rock, AR

Located across the Arkansas River from downtown Little Rock, the community that is now the city of North Little Rock was known only as "opposite Little Rock" until after the Civil War. In 1866, the conglomeration of mills, factories, hotels, and saloons was surveyed and platted under the name Argenta, a reference to the silver mines discovered ten miles north of the town. In 1890, Argenta's attempt to incorporate as a city was foiled by Little Rock, which annexed the town. Argenta was the 8th ward of Little Rock until 1906, when it once again became a separate entity. The town of Argenta changed its name to North Little Rock in 1917.

The city is part of the Greater Littler Rock metropolitan area, which has a total population of 580,625. The population of North Little Rock has dropped at a slight but steady rate each year since 1990. The estimated population in 2007 was 59,490.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

Built around the only railroad terminal in central Arkansas, North Little Rock originally developed as a collection of restaurants, hotels, and saloons designed to serve a transient population. Today the city remains a transportation hub, located at the crossroads of three interstate and two US highways and two freight railways. It is a terminal for four major trucking companies. Its small port facility on the Arkansas River is rated for international trade. The North Little Rock Municipal Airport handles overflow traffic from the larger airport across the river.

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT

North Little Rock has worked hard to turn itself into the "Sports and Entertainment Capital of Arkansas." The city offers a wide range of sports and recreational venues, including:

North Little Rock hosts a number of national and international sporting events each year, including the American Taekwondo Association's World Championships and the Busch-Pepsi Softball Classic.
