Make your bridal photography magical - no matter the season

 

Wondering where to have your bridal photos done or know of someone looking for a location? We always love seeing brides at The Old Mill, easily the most popular bridal photography location in North Little Rock. Just look at these beautiful photos, posted by Arkansas Bride last month. The park is open every day year-round and is free; just remember that it is a public park, so you might have some admiring bystanders.

 

 

 

 

Call for historic photos of The Old Mill

 

Friends of the Old Mill, the nonprofit organization that helps maintain The Old Mill at T.R. Pugh Memorial Park, is looking for any old pictures of The Old Mill. They are primarily interested in photos prior to 1940 that show features of the park (mushrooms, bridges, water features, old buildings, signs, the old crane inside the building, etc.). Photos will help with restoration projects and will help keep the park in an authentic-as-possible condition. Photos can be emailed to Bert Turner or brought by the North Little Rock History Commission at 506 Main Street to be scanned. Thank you for your help!
