DescriptionIf one man could be said to have created a city, William C. Faucette created North Little Rock. After he lost the 1903 mayoral election in Little Rock, Faucette and his lawyer friends introduced a bill in the Arkansas General Assembly making the section of Little Rock north of the Arkansas River a separate city. Faucette's bill was passed in 1917, making him a new mayor in a new city.
Spanning the Arkansas River, the Big Dam Bridge is the longest bridge built specifically for pedestrians and cyclists in the world. The 4,226-foot-long bridge rises 65 feet over the river. Also along the river is the North Shore Riverwalk, a promenade offering scenic views of the Arkansas River and the Little Rock skyline.
