E. 3rd St. has little traffic or activity along
this stretch just east of downtown Little Rock. The streetcar

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.
