Reservoir belongs to the large county of Pulaski, which was named for a Polish volunteer who saved George Washington’s life in the American Revolutionary War. Since then, the county has gone on to see historic Civil War battles and more recently, a booming economy at the heart of the city. As a two-mile residential neighborhood, Reservoir doesn’t have much history of its own, so residents looking for a blast from the past head to the Little Rock Central High
School Historic Site, which holds an important spot in local history. On weekends and sunny days, residents fill their time with a multitude of events outside the neighborhood, such as attending galleries or some of the area’s dozen performing arts centers. Locals also head to the city center for annual events, such as the Little Rock Film Festival and the ACANSA Arts Festival.
