Kari and Bobby Lindsey's modern home has an open floor plan. Built in the early 1900's, Mary Beck's Southern style home is one of the oldest in Calico Rock. Churches include the historic 1922 Church of Christ, the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, the First Baptist Church and the new Methodist Church. Former mayor Reed Mack Perryman will be the tour guide.
Tours depart from the Visitors Center at 104 Main Street (Highway 5 at the White River Bridge) at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Vans will take visitors to the six locations, then stop at the Artisans Cooperative on Main Street for a reception and refreshments.
