In the early 1980s, architect Ed Cromwell, with a group of other investors, began the work of restoring the Capital Hotel in Little Rock (Pulaski County) to its former glory. After considerable work, the doors opened once again just before Christmas of 1983. Another restoration project closed the hotel for two years, but it opened for business again in November 2007. The building, which is shown here in 2008, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
