Abstract (summary)

During the period between 1886 and 1939 the urban core of Little Rock, Arkansas experienced a change in residence patterns. Documentary and archaeological evidence indicated the Little Rock changed from a mixed area of hotels, boardinghouses, and single family residences to one almost completely devoid of residences. Studies of urban replacement in several northern cities have shown that this type of change was often due to industrial expansion in the urban core. Little Rock differs from these cities in that there was little industrial development in its urban core. In Little Rock the position of industry was substituted with wholesale suppliers and a service industry. This study addresses the relationship between the population of the urban core and this pattern of residential replacement. The factors that influenced this transition and the evidence of how this affected and was dealt with by urban core residents in Little Rock are discussed. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
