North Little Rock, Arkansas

North Little Rock is a city "opposite Little Rock" in Arkansas. With a current population of approximately 62,300 occupying an area of almost 55 square miles, North Little Rock has grown into a modern city with a mix of residential, manufacturing and commercial neighborhoods, as well as substantial green spaces for outdoor activities. The River Rail Trolley Service’s replica streetcars link the city with neighboring Little Rock.

North Little Rock began in 1866 as an unincorporated settlement named Argenta. In 1890, Argenta was annexed as the eighth ward of Little Rock, but was reestablished as a separate town in 1903, and became North Little Rock permanently in 1917. Many of North Little Rock's early businesses revolved around railroads and cotton. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the Missouri Pacific-Iron Mountain, Cotton Belt and Rock Island lines all established repair shops and maintenance yards in North Little Rock. Though the railroads suffered during the Depression, in 1961 the Missouri Pacific Railroad Company built a new North Little Rock yard prior to MoPac's merger with Union Pacific. Today, the Jenks Shop is Union Pacific's largest overhaul and maintenance shop. The Koppers Company plant has been turning out railroad crossties and bridge timbers since 1907. Cotton was also widely grown outside the city, and a 1919 history lists three cotton compresses, the Rose City Cotton Oil Mill, and the Buckeye Cotton Mill among North Little Rock businesses. Today, North Little Rock’s economy includes retail and entertainment.

North Little Rock has a substantial history of industry and construction during a period when asbestos-containing materials were widely used.
