The Tolbert E. Gill House is a historic house on the west side of South Spruce Street, just south of Arkansas Highway 22 in Paris, Arkansas. It is a single-story masonry structure, built of out rusticated stone by its first owner, stonemason Tolbert E. Gill. It is an architecturally unique and distinctive structure, with arched openings topped by castellated parapets. The yard is further adorned with stone artwork created by Gill, who is believed to be either a German immigrant or the son of German immigrants. Construction on the house began in 1920, and took about 15 years to achieve its present configuration.
The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.
The Stiegel-Coleman House, also known as Elizabeth Farms, is a historic mansion house at 2121 Furnace Hills Pike, just north of Brickerville, Pennsylvania. Built in 1757 and substantially enlarged in 1780, it was the home of two of colonial Pennsylvania's early iron and glass makers, William Stiegel and Robert Coleman. The furnace they operated, whose archaeological remains were rediscovered in 2004, was one of the most successful in the Thirteen Colonies, and provided war materials for Continental Army. Their house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966. It has remained in the hands of Coleman descendants, mostly as a private residence.

Located within downtown Hampton, the two-story brick building was designed by Frank W. Gibb, who designed 60 courthouses in Arkansas.

The Isaac Block House is a historic house at 404 East Hamilton Street in Wynne, Arkansas. It is a 1-1/2 story wood frame structure, locally notable for its fine Queen Anne styling. On the exterior this is evident in the wraparound porch, the use of fish-scale wood shingles, a projecting gable with carved decoration, and projecting bays that are similarly decorated. The house was built in Wittsburg in about 1885 by Isaac Block, a merchant son of German Jewish immigrants. After the railroad bypassed Wittsburg, Block decided to move the house to Wynne, a feat accomplished in the early 1900s by cutting the house into sections and hauling them on oversized wagons to the present location.

The house is located at the end of a long lane facing a gently sloping hillside.

The Lake Catherine State Park Prisoner of War Structures are two structures in the campground area of Lake Catherine State Park in Hot Spring County, Arkansas. One is a stone retaining wall, about 210 feet (64 m) long and 9 feet (2.7 m) tall, built out of native stone on a concrete foundation. It is laid out in a zig-zag pattern just south of the campground's main waterfront building, and is oriented with its faces generally directed eastward to the water. The other is an outdoor cooking area, also built of stone, located a short way west of the wall. Construction of both of these structures was begun in 1942 by crews of the Civilian Conservation Corps, but was interrupted when work ceased due to World War II. Both were then later completed by German prisoners of war who were housed nearby. They are believed to be unique in the state for this construction history.
