Arkansas State

Arkansas-state-united-states

Arkansas is a southern U.S. state bordering the Mississippi River. It's known for its abundant park and wilderness areas, with terrain encompassing mountains, caves, rivers and hot springs. The rugged Ozarks region in its northwest has hiking trails and limestone caves such as Blanchard Springs Caverns. Its capital, Little Rock, hosts the Clinton Presidential Center, housing Bill Clinton’s presidential archives.

Arkansas's landscape is an extremely diverse one. The Ozark and Ouachita mountains in the north and west stand in contrast to the abundant, flat, river-laced agricultural lands of the east. Nearly all the state's rivers flow from northwest to southeast and empty via the Arkansas and Red rivers into the Mississippi, which forms the major eastern boundary.

For more than a hundred years after Arkansas was admitted as the 25th member of the United States in 1836, it experienced little economic growth and retained a predominantly rural character. Thus there was little incentive for immigration from other states, and the state's population remained basically unchanged. Two unique regional cultures emerged in association with two types of local farming economy. The culture of the physically isolated Ozark and Ouachita mountain locations was based primarily on subsistence farming and limited-scale wood-products industries. Comparatively the lowlands culture of the flat Mississippi floodplain of the south and east was founded on a common Southern agricultural system with cotton plantations and substantial tenant farming

The economic and cultural aspects of Arkansas has actually changed from the 1970s, as rapid economic and metropolitan development in certain areas brought population development and increased economic activities. With improvements in transport and greater assimilation of the state's economy with the nationwide and worldwide financial systems-- especially in the 1980s and '90s under the governorship and U.S. presidency of Arkansas native Bill Clinton-- Arkansas received an increase of immigrants. The majority of the immigrants settled in metropolitan locations, most significantly Little Rock, Fort Smith, and other cities in the Arkansas River valley.

Board of Education decision.

The majesty of natural stone is perhaps best expressed by the magnificence of the stone castles of England. Inspired by the rustic appeal of natural stone, we wondered if the material could be used to make functional and beautiful grates.

With our eye for detail, exquisite craftsmanship and the infinite possibilities we offer in texture and color, our engaging designs in gratings complement the vision of international architects and designers.
