FUN FACT


Known for its natural beauty, Little Rock, Arkansas, really was named for a small rock. In the 1700s, a French explorer found a small rock formation near the Arkansas River and named the area, “la petite roche,” or small rock. In 2006, hoping to give the city a memorable moniker, the city was nicknamed “The Rock.”
