Riverfront Park - The Little Rock

River Market District

The Old Mill

This is a nice park along the Arkansas river with the most historic spot in the state. A plaque on a rock marks the first rock seen by the French explorer Bernard De La Harpe on his voyage up the Arkansas River from the Mississippi River in 1722. For 100 years prior to Little Rock becoming the capitol, this rock marked the spot early settlers forded the river. It was known as the "Little Rock".
Just up from the river park, the market district is permanent merchants as well as temporary farmer booths. Here you can buy all types of fresh foods. The area also hosts many outdoor performances with stages and seating overlooking the parks and riverfront.
It's not old but a replica in a tribute to early pioneers. It's biggest claim to fame is that the mill was in the opening scenes to Gone With the Wind and is the only remaining structure from the movie.
