When the Medical Arts Building was constructed in Hot Springs (Garland County) in 1929, it was the tallest building in Arkansas. Constructed to house medical offices, the building stands sixteen stories, rising approximately 180 feet into the sky. The building, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, sees limited use in the twenty-first century. While the first floor is occupied by a few small businesses, the rest is closed to the public.
