cost of $150,000. Burks’ design for the new Drew County Courthouse is among the most interesting in the state. Te massive three-and-one-half story limestone structure exhibits the vertical emphasis of the then-popular Art Deco style, which is augmented by the wrought- iron ironwork on the exterior and the stylized sunburst reliefs above the side entrances. But it also displays a Classi- cal vocabulary seen in the massive Ionic pilasters and classical, symmetrical win- dow treatment. Te interior includes marble wainscoting and steps and steel railings that emulate the exterior metal work. Eighty-five years after its con- struction, the Drew County Court- house continues — and will continue — to serve the needs of its residents.

Among the many programs and services of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program is the County Courthouse Restoration Grant Program. Created in 1989, this grant pro- gram has helped to extend the lives of courthouses that hold vital links to community pride and local history. Tese grants are funded through the Real Estate Transfer Tax, administered by the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council. Since the begin- ning of the program, the AHPP has awarded more than $22.9 million to 74 historic courthouses and courthouse annexes around the state for use in rehabilitating, preserv- ing and protecting these important historic resources. Since 2000, Drew County has received eight grants totaling $682,818 for the Drew County Courthouse.
