In May, AHPP's "Sandwiching in History" tours the Potts Inn in Pottsville, Pope County! Join us for this live and in-person tour on Friday, May 5, at noon!
When Kirkbride Potts constructed his house in 1858, it immediately became a station along John Butterfield’s new stagecoach route, which opened that same year to deliver mail and passengers to and from the West Coast. Potts’s home served as an inn for travelers to spend the night and as a post office with Potts himself as the postmaster. The community that grew up around the station was later named Pottsville in his honor. Built in the Greek Revival architectural style, Potts Inn remains one of the best-preserved antebellum houses in Arkansas.
