McVicar House–Historic Arkansas Museum


May 12, 2007

Historic Homes – Guided tours of four restored early 19th-century houses are offered daily on the hour, except noon.

Late 1840s. James McVicar built this wooden house, using white oak logs and square pegs, on the same block his friend Robert Brownlee built a brick home. Their homes follow the symmetrical 1840s style with a large central hall bordered by two rooms of equal size.  McVicar was director of the state penitentiary, a Mason, a veteran of the Mexican War, and a slave holder.
