Here’s how good Arkansas residents are at knowing landmark: No matter what era a photo was in taken, Natural State natives will know the location. Here’s why: The architecture and structures around Arkansas are so memorable and historical that residents will know of the place, (and sometimes exactly where) it can be found. These landmarks are unmistakably Arkansas and will be immediately known by those who live here.
11. Sunbeam Girl
VIDEO Pine Bluff residents will always recognize the Sunbeam Girl smiling on her swing. The moving Sunbeam Bread advertisement on Main Street was a local landmark for years. The Sunbeam Girl is still sitting on her swing, now in a permanent home at the Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Historical Museum.
10. Magnolia Murals
The murals in downtown Magnolia are popular among many of the murals found around Arkansas. These tell the story of the town's success in the oil boom years and its long history.
9. Christ of the Ozarks
Towering majestically over the Ozarks, the pride of the Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs is Christ of the Ozarks, one of the most recognized structures in Arkansas.
8. Barton Coliseum
VIDEO Arkansas State Fair attendees and concert devotees will always know the familiar facade of Barton Coliseum in Little Rock. The Coliseum is still going strong today, housing a music museum and hosting a varitety of events.
7. Old Main
Fayetteville's best known landmark is located on the University of Arkansas campus. Things may change often in northwest Arkansas, but Old Main will always be recognizable.
6. Old State House
This picture of the Old State House in 1934 doesn't look too terribly different than how it looks in 2016. The cars look a lot different today but the structure is the same grand standard it's always been.
5. Central High School
Central High in Little Rock is another historic building with a facade that hasn't changed even though the school itself has been through several changes since its establishment. Daisy L. Gatson Bates, also historically recognized for her work in civil rights, poses in this picture.
4. The Welcome Sign on the De Soto Bridge
Coming back home from Memphis on I-40 might be a usual (and sometimes everyday) experience for many Arkansas travelers, but nothing beats passing the state line and officially being home.
3. Fort Smith Hanging Gallows

VIDEO Perhaps it's a little morbid to say you enjoy visiting the restored gallows at the Fort Smith National Historic Site. One thing is true: Anyone who's visited the site certainly knows it when they see it.
2. Hot Springs Central Avenue
This print of Central Avenue published in 1924 was done at a time where the Spa City was a sizzling hot spot for Americans to visit. Not much has changed, visually or popularity-wise.
1. State Capitol Dome
The top of the State Capitol in Little Rock is another daily sight for many but a recognized one for nearly everyone in Arkansas. The Capitol especially looks great during the Christmas season when the dome is decorated with lights.
In addition to these photos, there are several other pictures of Arkansas landmarks taken over the years that residents will still be able to recognize and call by name. That’s one of the many beautiful things about living in the Natural State: A picture is an instant memory.
