Norman Historic Preservation Program, Inc. (NHPP, inc.)

Visiting the Caddo Valley Academy/Old Norman High School is like taking a trip 94 years back in time. The stately two-story edifice was built in 1924 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Renovations led by the Norman Historic Preservation Program (NHPP) continue and a tour becomes a trip through mini-museums depicting the school as it was many years ago as well as the history of an old “sawmill”town. Special tours can be arranged by calling in advance. A cottage available for lodging is also on the grounds

234 Hattie St.
Norman, AR 71960 US

10am - 4 pm Tuesday and Friday from late March through early November. Call to arrange special tours.
