The Cohn House
904 Scott Street
The Cohn House, at 904 Scott Street, has been our most challenging restoration. Originally built prior to 1872 at 801 Scott Street (a block away from where it was eventually moved in 1905 and remains today), it’s one of the City’s oldest “painted ladies” and has a rich past. As one of our oldest buildings, let’s dedicate some time to its history.
The building was first listed in the Little Rock City Directories in 1872 to Mathias Abraham Cohn. Mr. Cohn, who came to Arkansas after the Civil War, was a Jewish attorney who sponsored a successful bill whereby rabbis could perform marriage services in Arkansas. Before this, only Christian clergy had the privilege. He first settled in Woodruff County, where he served as a state representative, county sheriff, superintendent of schools for the second circuit, and was editor of the Augusta Sentinel newspaper (from A Corner of the Tapestry: A History of the Jewish People in Arkansas). The 1873-74 Little Rock City Directories list M. A. Cohn as a lawyer and general insurance with Westchester Fire Insurance Company, Empire Fire Insurance Company, and Mississippi Fire and Marine Insurance Company. From 1876 until 1908, the Cohn house became listed to Mrs. Theresa Cohn. After this time, Samuel S. Stewart, a Physician and Division Surgeon of Missouri Pacific Emergency Station, owned the building. The Scott street property is listed for both Stewart's home address and business. The property stays in Stewart's name until 1935 when Myrtle Stamps became the new owner and rented it out as furnished rooms. We bought the building in 2016. At the time of purchase, it had eight small apartments with few historical details remaining. It did, however, still have its beautiful staircase and lobby and we had pictures of what it looked like originally and got permission from the National Parks Service to bring the porch back to its original grandeur.
Soon after we started work, there was a tragedy next door when 908 Scott Street, another historic Victorian, burned down. While the fire department did a phenomenal job saving the Cohn House, the structure sustained serious roof and siding damage. We went back and restarted work again, redesigning the original apartments for ultimate functionality and beauty. We have finally gotten permission to put a secure parking lot at the back of the building from the City of Little Rock and are now waiting for official permission from the City engineering department before we can start its construction.
Now the Cohn House has its beautiful entryway fully restored (check out the original hardwood floors!) and has eight perfect little apartments sporting twelve-foot ceilings and huge windows. All come with complete, new kitchens and bathrooms. Close to the Soma retail district as well as the RiverMarket District, the Cohn House is perfect for people who want to walk everywhere and have a small energy footprint.

* Unfortunately, this is not a dog-friendly building because of the historic nature of the lobby and hardwood floors in each apartment.
