North Little Rock (Pulaski County) was organized from a largely rural area surrounding Argenta, which had been designated as the Eighth Ward of Little Rock (Pulaski County). The city of North Little Rock was part of an elaborate scheme hatched by politician and businessman William C. Faucette to reclaim Argenta. The plan, using legislation called the Hoxie-Walnut Ridge bill, allowed any town or city within a mile to annex adjoining territory. The plan surprised Little Rock government leaders who had not realized the possibility of its local implications.
