World Avenue

E. 3rd St. has little traffic or activity along this stretch just east of downtown Little Rock.  The streetcar in this view has turned off to its one-track terminal alongside World Ave.  This extension from the Little Rock Loop opened in late 2006.  It added about nine-tenths of a mile to the River Rail system.  It brought the total length to almost three and one-half miles. 
The statue is on the headquarters property of Heifer International, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending hunger and poverty, and to caring for the earth.   The donated work by Allan Houser is entitled "Homeward Bound."  It depicts a Navajo shepherdess with a lamb, sheep and dog.
