HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) - An effort is underway to preserve some of downtown Hot Springs' most historic structures.
Several are in shambles, and others have sat vacant for decades.
Some members of the community are holding a rally on Saturday, hoping to bring attention to the fate of these buildings so they can be used for years to come.
"Most of these buildings have something going on on the first floor, but once you get past that there's nothing," said co-organizer of the "Save Our Past" Rally, Robert Taylor. "A lot of the interior of the buildings are crumbling and in disrepair."
In an effort to raise awareness about the need for revitalization, Robert Taylor and others are hosting the rally on Saturday, encouraging the community what the future of Hot Springs could look like with a little effort.
