The Little Rock Welcome Center opened in May 2002 in the MacArthur Park Historic District in downtown Little Rock. It is located in the historic Walters-Curran-Bell House, also known as Curran Hall, built in 1842 by Col. Ebenezer Walters as a wedding gift for his bride, Mary Eliza Starbuck. The property, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, was later owned by James Moore Curran and his wife, Sophie Fulton, daughter of William Savin Fulton, Arkansas's last territorial governor and first U. S. senator. Other owners included Mary Eliza Woodruff Bell, daughter of William E. Woodruff, founder of the Arkansas Gazette. Averell Reynolds Tate, Bell's granddaughter, was the last resident of the house and lived in Curran Hall until the early 1990s. The city of Little Rock and the Little Rock Advertising and Promotion Commission acquired the house in 1996 and renovated it to serve as the city's first official visitor information and welcome center.
