Poinsett County Courthouse

Harrisburg, Arkansas

Originally constructed in 1918, the Poinsett County Courthouse was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.  Schelle-Architect was retained in 2005 to investigate continual water infiltration issues and accessibility concerns. Since that time, a comprehensive series of restoration and preservation projects have been completed with annual grants received from the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program.

Monroe County Courthouse

Clarendon, Arkansas

Severe water damage in several county offices as well as the second floor courtroom prompted Monroe County to begin a multi-year restoration of the courthouse, which was originally constructed in 1911.  Projects were phased according to funds availability with monetary assistance provided by Arkansas Historic Preservation Program County Courthouse Restoration Grants.

Prairie County Courthouse

Des Arc, Arkansas

The Courthouse in Des Arc was completed in 1913, and Schelle-Architect began working to preserve the building in 1994 with the restoration of the clock tower.  Masonry restoration, roof replacement, electrical upgrades, and the installation of an elevator are just a few of the projects completed since that time with future efforts planned in conjunction with AHPP grant cycles.
