Heritage sign dedication set for Tuesday

The dedication of the Arkansas Department of Heritage’s sign for the Mountain Home Commercial Historic District is set for Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 on the northeast corner of the courthouse square. Representatives from the ADH are expected to attend the dedication.

The city of Mountain Home was recognized as a commercial historic district in 2010, and Maryanne Edge of Mountain Home has been working to make it more official.

When Edge heard of the city’s official recognition, she began working to secure signs noting the designation approved and placed around the city.

Edge says the Arkansas Department of Heritage approved a grant application, providing matching funds for a historic district sign similar to the Civil War marker on the southwest corner of the square.

Earlier this year, Edge told KTLO, Classic Hits and The Boot news the historic district covers parts of Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Hickory, Main, Church, Baker and South streets.

Edge says smaller signs marking the parameter of the historic district were built by the Baxter County road and bridge department, with the City of Mountain Home’s street department handling the installation.
