La Petite Roche Historical Walk

In the early days of Little Rock, the Arkansas River
was the lifeblood of the community. The Little Rock
extended out into the river, pulling the current around
it to form a natural landing basin for boats. The earliest
ferry across the Arkansas River connected at the Point
of Rocks in 1819. In 1863 during the Civil War, Rebels
burned the CSS Pontchartrain at the riverboat landing
so the gunboat wouldn't be taken by Union forces.
As soon as Little Rock was captured, the Federals built
a pontoon bridge at the Little Rock to facilitate the
movement of troops and equipment across the river
After the war, the riverboat landing was one of the
liveliest places in town. The neighborhood around the
Little Rock became notorious for the entertainment
it provided - drinking, gambling and loose women.
Water Street took the label "Battle Row," Elm Street
became "Fighting Alley," and the area itself was
dubbed "Hell's Half Acre."One cobblestone half-block
of Elm Street remains north of Clinton Avenue
between Cumberland and Rock streets.
