James Peter Faucette was a politician, businessman, and the third mayor of Argenta, now North Little Rock (Pulaski County). He was a leader in the separation of Argenta from Little Rock (Pulaski County) after a forced annexation. When his brother William resigned as Argenta mayor in 1911, James was selected to fill the unexpired term. He was elected to a full term in 1911 and reelected in 1913 and 1915. It was during Faucette’s second term that the North Little Rock City Hall, still in use in the twenty-first century, was constructed.
