Archibald Yell began the practice of law sometime in the 1820s in Tennessee. Receiving an appointment as a territorial circuit judge, he moved to Arkansas Territory in 1835, eventually settling in Fayetteville (Washington County). He opened a law practice in the small building shown here, built in about 1835. In 1992, the law office was saved by the Washington County Historical Society and moved to a location near the Headquarters House Museum in Fayetteville.
