About the Garland Elementary

Originally constructed in 1922, Garland Elementary was built to replace the original wood structure school built in 1879 and destroyed by fire in 1920. The public school closed in May of 2001 and sat vacant until August 2017, when the building was purchased by the Walton Family Foundation to use for a K-8 charter school for 600 students in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The restoration of this historic building required the abatement, packaging, and proper disposal of asbestos containing roof flashing, roof penetrations, asbestos floor tile and pipe joints. Snyder Environmental provided the environmental remediation work and completed the project in March 2018. The project required extensive coordination efforts between Kinco, WER Architects and the owner to make certain the historic restoration goals of the project were maintained.

The building is now listed in the National Register of Historical Places.
