Completed circa 1835, the Archibald Yell Law Office was transplanted to the grounds of the Headquarters House Museum of the Washington County Historical Society in 1992. The property originally served as the office of the first Congressman of Arkansas, Archibald Yell. A striking figure with a fascinating personal history, Yell also served as the 2nd Governor of the state. He also spent years serving as a soldier and a judge during the Territorial Days. More information about Yell may be obtained through the society?s Living History Program.
