The American Princes play tour-guide

Posted By on Thu, Jun 12, 2008 at 4:44 PM


The American Princes' two front dudes contribute a round-up of their favorite spots in Little Rock for Aquarium Drunkard's recurring Off the Record feature. They represent admirably. The Big Dam Bridge, White Water, Sims and Pinnacle Mountain all get mentions.


The House With No Windows, Rock St. :: Now, this is actually no longer around, so I’m un-sportingly telling you of a Little Rock That Once Was, but this place was awesome enough to deserve a mention. Decades ago, this insane owner of several area pawn shops decided that anyone walking by his house would be tempted to rob him of his ill gotten gains (which, I guess, he stored at his house). Rather than installing bars or a security system, he walled in his entire home with a brick facade so that it looked like a normal two story house, only with no windows. It was so unspeakably creepy. Naturally, in high school, it was a great place to skulk around, My best friend and I convinced ourselves it was a vampire den. A few years ago, they ripped up the facade and now it’s just another boring building, but for a time, it was a weirdness unlike anything I’d ever come across.
